Hey I've wanted the same ones for about four years now lol. I actually want to get a carousel horse on my calf or a angel fish on my ankle for my grandpa or dad, I'm deff getting my family coat of arms(not anytime soon LoL). I'm kinda a ibg family person. Most tattoos I want are for someone, but the one I really want now is an Ankh for the back of my neck. I'll prb give piercings another try, just will shoot for my ears first. I'll deff make sure to test before, and I've heard the whole blood sugar going low first thing. Good to know. I'll bring juice or something with me. Thanks for the advice. I'm thinking about getting the belly ring after I lose weight but I know I'll change my mind too once I do. I moved out to Minnesota from California because my Grandpa had a lung transplant and the doctors told us theres no guarantee how long he'd live after that. I grew up not knowing him so I thought I should get to know him while I can and I needed a new start. Things weren't so hot in Cali for me. Glad I moved though. I always visit home, will be heading back for the holidays. Hows life for you? Hope all is well!
