    Mother And Daughter Tattoo

    My daughter is turning 18 soon and we are going to get a tattoo together. It's a mother and daughter type of thing, so it will be the same tattoo for both of us. We've been trying to come up with some ideas. Any suggestions from my EP friends? It needs to be something small...

    Im not in a position to get tattoos

    I want a tattoo, but the fact

    that it's permanent is what makes me reluctant to get one. I just don't want to wake up one morning and say to myself, what the heck was I thinking? A tattoo on the soles of my feet may be one option.
