In January my husband Brad and I got matching tattoos. Well, they are similar but different.
We chose to get tattoo's as a way of renewing our wedding vows. We had talked about renewing our vows for a year or two but could never decide on where or when or whatever. Then last year, on our anniversary he asked if I would like to get matching tattoos. He suggested that we get them on our wrists so that when we held hands they would be together. How could I say no.
So we researched tattoo art and various artists for a few months until we found Henry Lewis at Skull and Sword Tattoo in San Francisco. We met with him and liked him right away, he is quite a character and a very talented artist.
Here are the FAQs:
Did it hurt?
YES it did. More than I had expected as a matter of fact.
How long did it take?
It took him about an hour to draw it out and then an hour to do the actual tattoo. I think he is exceptionally fast.
What does BB stand for?
They are my husband's initials, they stand for Brad Boggie.
Are you going to get more tattoos?
I think I probably will and when I do I will probably go back to Henry. I really liked him as a person and as an artist. I have one on my back that I might get covered up. I'll see.
Sometimes I still freak out a little that I have a big tattoo on my forearm but I really love it. I think it is beautiful and I think of my husband when I look at it. It is better than any diamond ring could ever be.
