I always run everything through my sponsor first or at least try to and my sponsor suggested that I wait a year or two before making such a statement with a recovery tattoo he said the main reason is that most of us don't stay clean anyways and that wouldn't be a good message to carry.

Well here I am almost a year clean now and I really haven't even though much about that now. Hum I might wait another year I think

Hi Chance - I hear what you are saying - For me it felt like the right time. I got some time up before, then went into re-hab. The tat for me serves as a reminder of my time in re-hab and what I learnt.

PS - I don't listen to my sponsor anyomore - he just busted on speed after 17 years of sobriety from booze - Needless to say, I am looking for a new sponsor

WOW! I have been thinking of getting something on my shoulder....but, I'm scared.

Heavens, Indigo, didn't that hurt? Goodness! I like it a lot, but, did you have to be on any pain meds to do that?

I don't know much about tats, (obviously), I just don't like pain. Maybe I'll work up the courage (sans alcohol), and make it a gift to myself after some really good sobriety goal. Like a year or something.....hopefully I'll make it that far, and further!

Yeah, it hurt, all 23 hours of work (not all at once). Just feels like a really bad sun burn.

Recovery Tattoo

For some reason the site won't let me upload the pictures of my tattoo to post here, but I did just get one about 4 days ago. It says in cursive handwriting...

Serenity <3 Courage <3 Wisdom

...and goes around my wrist. The hearts in between the words are pink. It's actually a really big deal for me because it's the first tattoo I've gotten while sober. If you want to check out some pictures of it...check out my MySpace page. My page name on there is Angelxoxbaby...

they are in my pictures under the first album titled My Photos...

<3, Alex

:praying

Here's my first ever tattoo. Just got it like 5 hours ago.




It's the 1 day keytag from NA. I got it so that I will always remember that it's a "Just For Today" program. God willing, I will never have to pick up another white keytag. Also, I got it as a gift to myself for celebrating 1 year clean(in August).

Looks better in person, looks a little messed up in the picture. Pic was taken 2 hours after completed.
