Hardcore.

My dad just turned 73 years old on Sunday. Do you know what I got him for his birthday? A tattoo. He sat in a tattoo chair for over an hour yesterday getting his 50 year old eagle (from the navy) redone.

Seriously. How cool is that?

That is AWESOME!!!! I bet he was thrilled to have is tattoo freshened up!

My dad turns 72 in July but I don't think a tattoo would be at the top of his gift list. He flipped when he found out my sister had gotten one for her 40th birthday.

That rocks!

My sister and I gave my Dad money for a tattoo on his birthday a couple of years ago. Unfortunately he decided to get it done on Valentine's Day. Let me just tell you my Mom was not pleased.

THAT IS AWESOME!

My mom threatened not to pay for college if I got a tattoo. I got it 6 months after I graduated. ;o)

Maybe I could suggest she get a tattoo for her 65th? I wonder how that'd go over.

bad ass!
I got my Mom a tattoo for her 50'th. Later that night her artist got arrested for shooting fireworks off in the middle of sunset blvd. That TOTALLY made her feel like a bad girl (by association).

That is too cool! I hope to be that cool when I get that age.

I made my mom go down on her 50th and get tattooed with us. She got one on her foot.

Christina said...

That's so cool. Did you take any pictures? I don't think my parents would want a tattoo, the don't have any and they hate mine!

Michelle said...

Love it. No pix?

I'm so behind on my blog writing and reading, but wanted you to know that I'm so sorry about all your health shit. I so feel you on the cold sore thing, too. When I was in the ICU after my big ectopic rupture I was on a respirator which caused them and they gave me this kick ass tube of stuff that got rid of them in no time. They worked so well that I acted like I lost the tube I had when I was still in the hospital, so I'd have two tubes to take home with me. Maybe I'll share?

Also, even tho I haven't commented in a million years, you should know that about 10 times a day I have a question related to parenting and I ALWAYS think, "Nancy would know." You might just start getting email questions from me.

XOXO

First of all, my appologies for not commenting. I have been following your blog (and your mommy blog too) and all you health shit. Please know I have kept you in my thoughts and prayers. Now get better!

Second - your dad kick's ass! Seriously cool present to give to dad. I hope you got pictures.

That's an AWESOME birthday present! I would love for my dad to get a tat, but i don't think he'd go for it. I'm going to keep trying, though!
