Tattoo Tuesday

Y'all like my new logo?! Thank you, Tillie!

Welcome to the fourth round of Tattoo Tuesday.  I hope you join in on the fun!  I'd love to get people all around participating!

Hubs got creative! :)

Me; Heart Lock; Location: inside of left forearm; Age 18

Hubs; Key; Location: inside of right forearm; Age: 22

I've always kept my heart locked up when it came to dating people.  I was hurt in all of my relationships, friendships and by boyfriend, so it just seemed easier that way.  I decided I wanted to get a tattoo to represent that figurative lock I had on my heart.  I wanted a visual so people knew that my heart was locked up and wouldn't easily be taken advantage of.  I was hoping one day a worthy guy would come around that would actually want and work for the key.  Low and behold he did, a lot sooner than I was expecting.

Enter: Hubs.  We starting dating a few months before I turned 19.  We fell in love fast and everything progressed quickly after that.  I knew I wanted to marry him a few months after dating.  But that's a story for another time.

While we were still dating, a few months before he proposed, Hubs decided he wanted to get a key tattooed on his forearm.  The opposite one of mine, so when we hold hands they touch.  It's such a beautiful and meaningful thing he did for me.  I'm so lucky he found me.

I love stories like this behind tattoos. Showing that it wasn't just some random drunken night is lovely.

Both are great!
