king of piercings — old schoolPosted: August 7, 2012
I don’t think I am a tyrant but I might have once told my lovely teen daughters that getting a tattoo or piercing was their way of telling me they were ready to be an adult and take over their own expenses for room and board and pay for their own college.
I can’t quite recall telling those two jewels of my heart that I would take sandpaper and remove any tattoo they got. And if my oldest wanted to believe that, well I just smiled, (but my youngest knew I would never do anything that cruel ).
And now their bodies are their own, the tumultuous teen years past and look at me…. I’m pierced.
