I'm 55, got nose pierced at 45 as my "rage against middle age". Got the tattoo about a month ago, by my daughter with her own design, so that made it more special to me. I chose a Phoenix in a henna style. I had decided that if Life kept trying to leave it's mark on me I was going to choose the Mark! I made the decision 10 yrs ago to do it, just didn't want something random and stupid for the sake of getting a tattoo. Glad I waited
@Decades_Antqs Love that!! I have a tiny one on my wrist for my family. I would love to get more though I love the tiny tiny meaningful ones, I think they're so cute.
Thanks @Elin ! I love it, it's different from everything I looked at. Soft with Red, Brown, Orange and Yellow. Not a black line bright colored one, very subtle on my bicep. She's designing another one for me for smaller for back of shoulder. It will represent my deceased husband and I. Dragonflies in a ying yang form also will be a softer henna style. Can't wait! LOL
