Miami Ink

Now that we have Sky, it has opened up a world of possibility. For one, Glen is out of bed at 6am to watch sport, meaning I've had 2 mornings of not getting up early. Of course now I have to get up early the next 2 mornings.

Miami Ink has me hooked. All these hugely tattooed people getting meaningful tats to represent important times in their lives.

I've spent about the last 15 years trying to think of a single tattoo that wouldn't totally do my head in in a few years. Miami Ink provides little inspiration. I don't want a motorcycle tattoo, or my own eyes represented in a rear view mirror to show how significant my children are, or a 50s pin up girl, or a geisha...

I'm loving the show though, and I'm spending an unhealthy amount of time mulling over tattoo designs. How about nice piccie of Helen Clark on my back? Now that would be hot.

I love Sky- the subscription would be worth it if only for Playhouse Disney alone.

I've thought about getting a tattoo for years too- but I'm not sure the pain would be worth it.

Tattoos are cool. It only hurts a little but afterwards your street cred goes through the roof!

I know what you mean Martha, I nearly got one after the birth of my second child. I was feeling all "I am woman hear me roar. A tattoo? After what I've just been through? Phshaw!" (Always wanted to use that word, not sure about spelling though.) I am so glad I chickened out. I hate to think what I would have come up with, what with all those hormones racin around making me crazy. Maybe that's a sad reflection on how fickle I am though, that I know there's bugger all I'm attached to visually that I know I'll be attached to in, say, ten years' time.

Over the last ten years I have seen every part of my body get bigger and flabbier. So I am waiting until I find a design that will still look good after being stretched in one direction or the other.

Any ideas?
