Tattoos
Tattoos. I don't have any. I always said that if I did get one it would be two small (1/2 inch) circles on my lower breast bone right above the xiphoid process, then a larger circle above them that says, “CPR Press Here”.

Tattoos (con't)
However…I did find this on the internet. It’s a hoot! But I think I’ll keep my original idea and just put this on my knitting bag.

Also she/ they might just be curious. I have several tattoos and piercings (though not as many piercings as in my twenties) and my mom was always curious as to why a person gets this done. She would ask "so where does one get a tattoo"? She's never going to get one, she's just curious by nature.
Some of the things she's asked people have been translated as judgement or disapproval but knowing her and what she really wants to know, it's not a judgement. She is just inquisitive and genuinely interested in how and why things are the way they are and why we do the things we do. It's almost naive and innocent, sweet. I know not all people are as kind as my Mom (who is the greatest mom and the world is a better place because she's in it) but there is a chance that some people are just plain curious, gay, straight, orange with yellow polka dots, they just wanna know "why"??

Haha - having spent lots of time with the older generation, I would guess the lady didn't phrase her quesion to ask what she intended. I would say that if they take the time to ask, then they are not judging you and walking to the other side of the street so try not to be aggrevated and just tell them that there is no real meaning to it, it's just decoration.

I work with the public, but never realized just how ridiculous people can be about not respecting personal boundaries until I got pregnant. People do not hesitate to tell me I am big, small, touch my stomach and ask about a million other personal questions. The kicker is that people seem offended when I dodge their attempts to touch my stomach.

Check this out!! It was posted years ago on KH.


To me, using one's person as an art canvas isn't offensive. It can be kinda fun to see the hair color du jour.

I didn't really think of it this way, but you are kind of correct. I would imagine that if she was truely being offensive then she never would have asked the question. She would have just kept it to herself and not bothered. So I guess she could have just been truely curious and didn't really know the appropriate way to ask the question.

Por dio it is a good thing I cannot have children, because there would be an "incident" in such a happenstance. What is it with people?!!?!?
