Full Belly Tattoos

I've never been a huge fan of tattoos. I get that they're popular, but I've never really seen the point in them. I guess I've never had anything that I'm that into that I need to be permanently displayed on my skin. And I've never seen one and went "Oooh, I wish I had that!" On spring break when there was the intense peer pressure to get one, and all my friends were getting them, I ended up getting my naval pierced because it was only $20, got my friends off my back, and ultimately I knew I could get rid of it about a month later. It seemed like a win-win for me. (Except for the parent freakout, but that was manageable) So mix that with the fact that I've been having some really vivid, off-the-wall dreams lately, and you've got a recipe for craziness. Last night I dreamed I had tattoos all over my belly. One particularly large one, covered the entire right side of me, and even had a colorful ad for Pampers built in it. What? Anyhow, I woke up completely frantic and lifted my shirt to make sure it was just a dream. Then I checked and rechecked in the shower to make sure I really didn't have a tattoo. And I just caught myself checking again. I hate vivid dreams. They mess with my head all day long.

I have three, am getting two more, probably next week. I love them. Saves a lot of time scrap booking. I'm just like, "this is for the twins, this is for my husband, this one is...."
I of course obsess over design and placement far too long, but it's for almost ever sooo, gotta be careful.
