My New Addition!



So here it is!  This is my new permanent accessory!  I got my new tat on the 14th and it was a long time coming.   I have actually been planning this tattoo for about 2 years now.  There are a couple different things represented in this tattoo.





First and foremost I got this tattoo to commemorate having my kidney transplant for over 10 years.  Yes you heard that right, 10 years.  If you don't know much about organ transplant, this is a big deal.  I am actually on my way to 12 years as of right now.  (So think happy thoughts!).  The color is also symbolic.  The green represents as both kidney disease and organ transplant as far as cause ribbon colors go. 



There is also a needle and thread, and if you look closely there are two small stitches at the top of the bow knot.  For those of you who know me, the reason is pretty apparent.  I love sewing, it has become my passion and has pretty much taken up all my creative energy. 



Right now it is almost all healed up, but itching like crazy!  For all those who have been thinking about getting a tattoo, I say just do it!  You won't regret it.
Well that's all for now!
