Confession: I kind of want a tattoo
I'd never get one, of course. For one, I am absolutely terrified of needles (should you ever happen to meet the poor woman at my OB's office that had to draw my blood throughout my pregnancies, make sure to give her a hug. She's earned it). For two, they are strongly discouraged in my religion.
And, mostly, I'm just not sure there's anything I'd be willing to etch on my body with the complete certainty that I'd still love it in 50 years.
Even though I'd never get one I've spent an inordinate amount of time deciding what I WOULD get if I somehow got over my fear of needles and Aaron got over his extreme distaste for tattoos and the Church suddenly decided tattoos were kosher.
I think I would go with the words "Fear not" in pretty script on my wrist. Kind of like this one-

When I was a kid I had a debilitating fear of the dark. I memorized scriptures like Isaiah 41:10 to help me sleep and they still come back to me when I need them. There's a verse of a hymn based on that scripture (third verse of #85) and it has always been one of my favorites. Another option would be the word "Endure" 'cause I think I would like the permanent daily reminder. Hypothetically.
Now that my brain can finally rest on the tattoo question (seriously, why do I agonize over these stupid things?), I'm super curious what other people would get (or already have?).
So let's just say you have unlimited funds and no moral issues and you laugh in the face of needles. What ink would you get??
