Tattoos and tequila

We did not tell you about the time that we got tattooed in Madrid, did we? We had talked about getting a tattoo together before, but when we were in Madrid, Spain, we finally got to it. So it was not a spur of the moment desition per say, but it was kind of a split second desition that night. It was like should we do it? Really? okay, lets!

To be honest, none of our tattoos turned out that great... Angelicas is the worst, the tattoo had lost most of its color and looks like a spotted military plane. Lee, Angelica's fiance, his plane is crooked but it has most of its color. Jacob, Ann's husband's tattoo is a bit spotted as well. Maybe it's not such a good idea just to walk into a tattoo parlor without doing your research beforehand, but we all thought that this was a pretty simple tattoo to make, so what could possibly go wrong. Jacob did a google review of the tattoo parlor and was given the option to go back and re-do the tattoo, but since its a bit of a drive to get there from Sweden to Spain, that's not really an option... so if you are getting a tattoo whilst visiting Madrid, don't choose Montera Tattoos, there are plenty of other options. Our tattoos looked good at first, but after a while, they started losing color. And it was not like it was one of their artists that were bad, we used two of them and that kind of says it all, don't you think?

We don't usually write bad reviews but having a tattoo is making a life long commitment, so its kind of a big deal. For some it may even be the only time in your life that you get a tattoo, so you don't want anything to go wrong. It's not like having a bad meal at a restaurant. There are no do-overs.

So we paid 70 euro per person for the tattoos, so they should be okay, would you not say?

This was our first but everyone knows, as soon as you start getting inked, there's no stopping it. It fills your head with new ideas, on what to do next. And for us, it's in what city do we get tattoos next. Ann's husband did one in Athens as well, do you want to see it? I am guessing our next one will be in Paris... or maybe even in Edinburgh.

So let me ask you this, how many of you have done tattoos abroad? Including the once you did as your younger self whilst traveling. When, where and what please?

Aditi Sharma,
I have been wanting to get a tattoo during my travels, quite specifically the Sak Yant whenever we travel to Thailand. Sorry to hear that the tattoo didn't turn out quite like what you'd hoped for but I'm sure you could get some some design added around it to make it less obvious.
Make sure you do your reseach before you do your tattoo, okay?
I havent got any tattoos, I am scared I would regret it but if I ever did it would be a butterfly.
