The Tramp Stamp
- Get it removed completely
- Get it covered up – This was not advised as my tattoo is very dark ink
- Incorporate it into a new design – check!
As I sat and pondered over my decision, I realised that I didn’t want to get rid of my tramp stamp, I mean, forever. It was part of me, albeit a shady part of me, it was still part of me. I couldn’t just rub it out after 13 years together. We had a past!
So I decided it was time to pimp it up, Terry style. As I’d been rather naive first time around as to what I could have, I decided to leave the design to Terry. After all, he was the tattooist.
So I went to see Terry again, this time with my stomach full of butterflies and some time on my watch.
So, after 2.5 hours of biting a pillow, (it wasn’t as bad as that, I just like biting pillows), I had my new addition. It was everything I wanted. You could still see the reminder of my past, but with a new pimped up look. I didn’t feel like a tramp with a stamp anymore. I would no longer feel the sting of embarrassment on the beach on my annual bikini unveiling. Next year on the beach, I would wear my new tattoo with pride.
