OT: A tattoo for fathers day!
Yeah, I got a tattoo for my dad for Father's Day. Weird? Maybe, but he loved it.

If you're curious, you can read about the meaning here.

This is "Mickey Rat", my dad's trademark doodle. Inked on my right foot. (FYI, tats on your foot really do hurt!)

That's the cutest thing! I love it.

I've had two done on my right foot, and yes it's the most painful site. It's almost worth having it done because it feels so good when it's over.

I've been wanting to get a memorial tat of my mother who passed away nearly two years ago from diabetes on my arm. My oldest had a memorial tat of mom put on his arm and it looks beautiful. Your tat is so cute, what a way to honor him.

That is the coolest Father's Day gift ever!!! Love, love that you did that for your dad!!! You are a great daughter!!!

I'm with ya on the pain, my son did mine a few years ago! It actually needs to be re-inked, but he's now living 100s of miles away and nobody else is gonna touch the foot!!!

Anyone who gets a tattoo on the foot is a brave, brave soul.
