My Tattoo



So I survived! ...and I didn't pass out or cry or wince....
It really wasn't bad for all you guys out there who siked me out. I love how it turned out.....it's perfect!
I just love having his footprint on my foot....inside my heart I know that every step I take, Jacob is here with me and now I have it on the outside too ..... so sweet. There are lots of reason why I wanted this tattoo but one of them was so that people would ask about him. As I had said before, when I had Jacob with me, every where I went people would ask about him. Now I have some way for people to ask about him even though he is gone. AND IT ALREADY WORKED! As I was getting it done, another tattoo artist came in and asked how old my child was and I got to share with him some of Jacob's story. Then he shared with me that he had a baby brother Jacob who passed away before he turned one. It worked even before it was done and ministered to someone. I just love it. Thanks Bob!

That is awesome. I have been thinking about a tatoo for JT for about 1 year now. I wish I had the guts to do it. But, the last tattoo I got I passed out cold. I think I might just get the nerve up and just do it.

It looks beautiful!!!

I love this tatoo Karen, just love it. And how precious that Jacob goes with you and before you, everywhere you go. He will be talking to lots of people through you, telling his story of life as a mighty little warrior. This makes me smile in my heart. Prayers for you and your family continue here in my home.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

I love it! I am so happy I found your blog post. I have been thinking about getting a tatoo in memory of my daughter too. I have never been interested in tatoos, but, for the same reasons you mentioned I have been thinking about it. So thank you for sharing this. I am still thinking about what and where I would want one.
