Family Monogram

Location: Inside wrist

The story: I have my family's initials tattooed on the inside of my wrist. I wanted my first tattoo to be meaningful and in a size and location that could easily be covered up. My mom was majorly against me getting any tattoos, but even she teared up a little when she saw it (I'm telling myself they were happy tears). My younger sister got the same tattoo on her leg, and a few years ago, my dad got it on his back. Eight years later and I still get a kick out of drunk guys in bars asking me if I'm a Gemini.
