The story behind our tattoo

A long time ago (almost 20 years) Faithe and I talked about getting a tattoo while we were sitting sipping sangria on a beach in Spain.

All these years later we finally went and got it done. American Tattoo here in Omaha is a great place (probably the best place) to get a tattoo if you are thinking about getting one done.

The guys that did the tattoo were great! We got to have them done at the same time. Yes, it hurt but it was well worth the pain. I would describe it as how you might feel if you stayed out in the sun too long.

You can probably see a bunch of different things if you look closely at the tattoo pic.

There’s a heart in the middle which stands for the love that we have for each other and the love that we have for our friendship. There are two swans which symbolizes each of us. There are two Christian fish which symbolizes our faith in Christ Jesus. If you look at the entire tattoo you might even see some eyes as in a mardi gra mask.

I think it’s a pretty cool tattoo.
I think it’s pretty darn elegant.
I love it!

  1. Very nice. I've always wanted to get a tattoo, but I've never found anything that meant that much or had that much significance. Plus, I'm scared to death about the pain!!! LOL serously!


Thanks for the comment
