So Danielle and I got tattoo’s just a little bit ago.  While we were in Colorado we decided to be spontaneous and get some tattoos.  We’ve been planning to get some now for a long time, but we didn’t have the money and/or the reason.  Well, the place we went to was called “Millenium Tattoos’ in Colorado.  The guy that did ours just came back from a national tattoo convention and won best portrait.  So we thought that he had some credibility and we’ll also never forget our trip now.

We are actually considering getting some more.  It will take some time to build up some money, but we love tattoo’s and we need to get Danielle’s touched up so we have to go back within the year and it’s free.  I know that tattoo’s have been kind of taboo, but I don’t think so.  I think it is an expression of your personality.
