So I went and did something that’s totally not me.
I hinted at it here.
Some of you were with me when I got it done.
Others are Instagram/Twitter stalkers.
I couldn’t tell you all before now, because, well, my mom reads my blog and I had to show her in person. It’s just what you do.
The telling of the mom.
Not the other thing.
Enough waiting….here it is: (P.S. Travis WROTE and RECORDED the background music!)
- Badass music, Travis!
- Yes, Teri is so cute. Bloggers like to talk about other bloggers. You won’t BELIEVE what we said about you!
- Total time: 15 min. prep. 15 min. tattoo.
- Total cost: $60 + tip.
- Pain level: Tolerable…honestly not as bad as I expected. Natural childbirth was 100X worse.
I feel like I need to justify this a little more. (Maybe because my mom wasn’t too thrilled when I showed her. She had a similar reaction when I got my tragus pierced. If you don’t know what part of the body is a tragus, just try to imagine. Whatever you’re thinking, that’s probably it.)
Yes, that is the TT button I had tattooed. Yes, I love my blog. And yes, I love what Tuesday Trainer represents: health, fellowship, a dedication to self-improvement.
I certainly wouldn’t have gotten this tattoo had the symbol been, just that, a symbol. Plus, I’m not crazy – blogging is a hobby. Who knows how long I’ll do it. Not me!
TT means something much more than Tuesday Trainer.
TT stands for Travis Truly. And Tank Travis.
Childhood names that Travis was given. (Tank Travis because the boy weighed 10 pounds when he was born and then stayed well above the 100th percentile for height and weight. He was…a tank.)
There was even a song that went along with Travis Truly. Travis’ mother made it up when he was 2. I tried my best, Catherine. Listen:
This tattoo has been something I’ve wanted ever since I saw the connection between the TT button and the nicknames.
I love it.
It makes me feel hardcore.
And a little naughty.
Tuesday Trainer (Travis Truly) For Life!
QUESTION: Do you have a tattoo? How many/what of? If not, what would you get?
