Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I have wanted a mom tattoo. I have one tattoo already, on my hip. It's the belt of Orion (3 stars) that my two sisters and I have. Bro tat baby!
When Aden was born, I knew I wanted his initials (ajk) somewhere on my body. It had to be some place that I could add more names if I had more children. I chose my wrist. When thinking about that, I decided maybe I wanted a little something more. My family is A LOT scandinavian, my mom always tells us to "BUCK UP! You're a viking!" I've grown up thinking being norwegian was bad ass. And I wanted a bad ass tattoo. So no doubt I wanted something in the language of bad ass.
I looked up different sayings that I came up with on my own. All typically beginning with "Mother of".. eventually I came up with Mora Til Den Sterke... Mother of the strong. I think it's pretty explanatory... my children are/will be strong. In many ways.
SO. I made a tattoo appointment. For February 18th. I told a few people about the appointment like my sisters and my close friends but that's about it. I figured not everyone is going to like my tattoo and is probably going to try to convince me out of getting it. But I like it. And that's all that matters.
Anyway, I went to Durb Morrison (who did my stars and my sisters stars) who is absolutely amazing. He took his time to adjust the font and make sure it was the size I wanted and was perfect in every way. I am SO happy with how they turned out..
