Nope. These baby footprints will never be washed away by the tide.
Momma has had this temptation ever since Ace was born. She wanted to get Ace’s baby footprints from his birth record tattooed on the top of her feet. The hospital never gave us Ace’s birth record before we left the hospital. So, basically we had no proof that he belonged to us! 😀
After jumping through some hoops, filling out some paperwork, and driving over to the hospital we finally got a copy of his birth record that had his baby footprints from when he was born.
For her birthday present, Momma had wanted one of those remote starter kits put on her Explorer so that she could warm the truck up in the winter without having to go outside and start it. I looked all over for a good deal and just couldn’t find something within our price range.
Momma called me one day at work and told me that I was getting her a baby footprint tattoo instead of a remote starter for her birthday. She was actually at the tattoo shop and had already paid for them before she called me. I knew I didn’t have any choice in the matter, so I agreed. At least I wouldn’t have to hunt for an affordable remote starter for her truck. 😀
Well, it has been a few weeks since she had Ace’s baby footprint tattoos done and they are finally healed up pretty good. Here is a picture of them…
WARNING: Momma is allowing me to post these pictures online as long as I can assure her that no one will copy her idea. So please don’t get your kids footprints tattooed on the top of your feet or Momma will hunt you down and cut your feet off with the jawbone that she rips from my head when she finds out someone copied her idea… 😉
Momma loves them. I have never seen anyone with their baby’s footprints tattooed on the top of their feet. The guy that did the tattoo said that he had been tattooing for almost 15 years and had never tattooed a baby’s footprint on anyone.
Anyways, I think they are awesome and a good way for her to display her love and devotion to our son.
I am tattoo free. I have never come up with a reason good enough to mark my body permanently. I could get a skull or an arm band, but that doesn’t mean anything to me. I’ve been thinking about taking the plunge and getting a tattoo, a permanent mark on my body, that represents how I feel for my son.
Since his name is Ace, I have been thinking about getting something to do with an Ace from a deck of cards. My brother in law found this energy drink called “Ace Energy” and it has a pinup girl sitting in front of an Ace of Spades.
I think this is pretty darn cool. Maybe, just maybe, if I can work up the nerve, I will get this tattoo done. That is a BIG maybe…
