Some brides worry over their wedding dress, what their bride’s maids will wear, the venue, catering, blah, blah, blah. Sure, I think about those things too, but the things that are really making me fret are are a couple of my tattoos. Don’t worry, I’m not wanting to get them lasered off – I want to get them touched up! Or, in the case of the truly awful butterfly on my left shoulder, covered up.
Francis the Chimpanzee
When I got Francis many years ago, I didn’t like the look of his brown eyes, They looked weird (to me), and it seemed as though blood got tattooed into it. I went back and asked that his eyes be changed to green. Green is my favorite color, and I have brown/green hazel eyes. I was happy with him like that for a long time, but the more I’ve learned about chimps, the more I realize how unrealistic and unnatural his eyes are. I want them changed back to brown!
Out of all the tattoo changes I’d like to make, this is the one that is the most important to me before our wedding. I’m lucky to have several friends who are incredibly talented tattoo artists. Now all I need is the “extra” money (will I ever have that again??) to get him touched up.
