I have a friend who was in high school when she started asking for my mom’s name.
My mom was a very shy and reserved person, so it wasn’t like she was a big deal to her.
She didn’t really give it a second thought.
I was like, ‘OK, I’ll take that.
You know, I like you too.’
And it was kind of weird because I never did ask for her name or anything.
My friend just didn’t care and it was just a weird thing.
That was when I was really into tattooing.
It was just so weird to me to have to ask for something, to have something that I know I’ll be able to get.
And that’s how it became my mom.
I think my mom got really into the tattoo industry after she was like 30.
She wanted me to get a tattoo so she could have me as her niece.
She really was into it.
I would see her every time she was home and she’d ask me if I wanted to go see my mom or whatever.
I remember one day when I went back to my mom, I was just like, she’s just really into it and she’s always looking at me like, I can’t believe you asked me.
And I’m like, Oh, I know.
And she said, ‘You know, if I had to do it all over again, I would do it for my nephew.’
I remember thinking, Wow.
That’s so cool.
And so I went over there and I had a tattoo on my leg.
I didn’t even know I had it until I was at my mom and I was having dinner and I’m thinking, I’m gonna put this on my back.
I had all these people come up to me and I got it.
It’s a family tattoo.
I’m not even sure how it came to me but I knew that I was going to have it.
[Laughs] It’s been so cool to see the reaction that I’ve gotten from people on my Instagram account.
I just have so many people commenting on it that I don’t know if I’m even able to respond to every single one.
I have so much love for people and I think it’s been a good way for me to connect with people.
I’ve got so many different tattoo artists that I have worked with that have been so supportive and they’ve been so sweet.
And it’s kind of like, wow, this is what my mom wants.
But I’m just kind of thankful for the time and energy that I’m able to give to people.
It really has been a great way for my family to connect and be a part of something that has been so meaningful for them.
If I could go back in time and change something, I’d do it right now.
It has been great for me personally and it’s really been a blessing.
