Wordful Wednesday 1/12/11

For the past few weeks, I have been searching for a picture of my Uncle Gino's tattoo with no success. :( He had a huge tattoo on his arm of woman's (side profile) face. Since I didn't find a picture of his tattoo, I'm guessing he doesn't want me to have the same one as him...not surprising! :)
My whole plan was to get the same tattoo as his, but change the face of the woman to a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Day) skull. For those of you that don't know - Dia de los Muertos is a holiday celebrated in Mexico to honor the dead. Typically this holiday is celebrated on November 2nd, but I wanted to pay tribute to my uncle Gino (who passed away 8/17/06 from a ruptured brain aneursym) -- FOREVER!

Here is my tattoo I got this past weekend:

♥Love you, Uncle Gino!♥

Alicia,
It's on my foot. OUCH! It looks great but it sure did hurt.

Thanks for stopping by.

Olivia,
YES I was brave. The tattoo hurt so bad and my foot is still swollen. I have learned that the foot is sensitive place. LOL!

Thank you very much for stopping by The Frugalicious Mommy.

Oh goodness. Looks like that had to hurt. I just can't bring myself to do that.
