The Tattooed Person’s Survival Guide to Thanksgiving

Your Survival Guide to Thanksgiving  Family Goals It’s that time of year again. Time for you to pack your bags, load up the car (or hop on a plane, train, or bus) and head on out to mom’s/grandma’s/Aunt Brenda’s/etc. house for Thanksgiving Dinner. Now, you love your family… or at least you tolerate them – no one is saying otherwise. But unless your name is Wednesday Adams (in which case…call me so we can be best friends), you – as a heavily tattooed person – probably dread these large family get-togethers a bit,…

I occasionally promise myself I will “Act like a real grown-up lady” and do All the Things and I go out and purchase a menagerie of products and objects to make me feel Goddess-like and then I swiftly lose interest.

When it comes to getting tattooed, ignorance…
