The things we assume.

So I am getting my first tattoo on Tuesday. I am really nervous and excited as the thing I am getting is really significant to me. However, I was more nervous about telling my parents I was getting it. I am 29 years old. Understand, I was raised in a household where tattoos were a sin and wrong and my mother literally told me when I was a teenager. "If you get a tattoo we will disown you." This later was annexed with the statement, "Not while you're under our roof," and a long argument about the Bible's stance on it (which I won via my own red tent stance). So it has been several years since I moved out of their house and I just recently set the appointment. I had told them for months that I wanted to get it in celebration of completing my Master's Degree, but they just dismissed it. I became incredibly excited as I set the date until I remembered that I should tell my parents because if I waited until it was done they would see it as a betrayal. I was terrified about their reaction to the point I felt sick to my stomach. So I waited until my mom had a few drinks and the conversation went as follows...
Me: I just won't be able to stop by on Tuesday.
Mom: I thought you were off work though?
Me: I have an appointment. I'm...getting my tattoo done.
Mom: (after a moment) Oh...really?
Me: Yes...I'm a little nervous about it and I know it's going to hurt but uh- I'm really excited about it.
Mom: It's what you were planning on right?
Me: Yes.
Mom: All right. You know...I've been thinking about getting one.
Me: Are you serious?
Mom: Why?
Me: You realize you threatened to disown me right? If I got a tattoo?
Mom: I didn't say that.
Me: You know me and conversations. Trust me, that's what you said.
Mom: I might have said it but it was your father's opinion. You've seen my side of the family. My father was in the Navy and my Mom co-owned a bar. Everyone has tattoos. A part of me...a part of me has always wanted one, but Dad doesn't like them. I was thinking something small. Oh hey, do you need somebody to be there?
Me: Kelsey (my best friend) is going. I love you Mom, but I don't want someone who has never supported this choice to be my support for this choice...ya' know?
Mom: I suppose that's fair. For what it's worth, I'm sorry. So long as I get to see pictures of the process.
Me: Done.
So one down and one to go. So as I am hanging out with both of them today and we were sharing a pint ( I see a theme here...) and Mom was showing me a few pictures of the one she wanted to get.
Dad: Whatcha lookin' at hun'?
Mom: (glancing at me) I was just showing Alicia pictures...of a tattoo I'd like to get.
Dad: Huh. (Takes a sip) Yeah?
Mom: Yeah. (nervously joking) What do you say, do you want to get matching tattoos with me?
Dad: Ha! No. You can get a tattoo if you want, but I won't- nope. It looks very pretty though.
(Both of us look over at him with surprised faces.)
Mom: Yeah, you know (she looks at me and I scrunch my face and shake my head) she's getting hers next week.
Dad: Her what?
Me: My uh- my tattoo.
Dad: Really? So...what's it going to be of?
Me: The White Tree of Gondor and a French phrase.
Dad: You big geek.
Me: Oh come on Dad, I'm not a gee-
Dad: Right, you're a huge nerd. I'm a geek. See, I remembered. So, will you- will you-
Me: It will be between my shoulder blades so if I don't want you to see it, you won't.
Dad: (smiles) You've thought about this.
Me: For years.
Dad: (takes a sip) Nerd.
That was it. My huge freakout was...for nothing. I assumed they'd freak out. I assumed they'd be angry. I assumed everything that they thought and believed when I was a teenager was still prevalent now. Mom assumed Dad hated tattoos outright and despite her desire to get one, refrained because of that assumption. Strange how we can be so shaped by the things we assume.
In other news, I am really excited and I hope to be able to show you guys some pictures of the process if you're interested.

According to my mother, getting flowers is a gendered thing. So because I am a boy I shouldn’t get flowers. Well excuse me I don’t think that’s very nice I think I deserve to get flowers especially if I give people flowers a lot. I mean you don’t have to give me flowers, but saying I should ever get flowers because of my gender is a whole other thing.

once my sister got rejected for a job at a web design company that she really wanted to work for so that night she hacked into their website and redirected it to her blog and the next day the CEO called her and hired her on the spot so moral of the story: if at first you don’t succeed, hack their website and make them beg for mercy
