I Live in a Pineapple Under the Sea

Things I Learned This Weekend:

  • Old ladies from church do not like tattoos or nose piercings.
  • Old ladies from church are not sure what to think of me now that they know about my tattoo.
  • Old ladies from church sure do like to talk about dogs.
  • Old ladies from church are blind and should not be making jewelry.
  • Making jewelry at 9 a.m. on a Saturday is less fun than making jewelry at 9 p.m. on a Saturday.
  • Saturday mornings without cartoons are STUPID.
  • Breakfast pastries do wonders to improve my mood.
  • Some boys think I have a nice butt.
  • Compliments also do wonders to improve my mood.
  • I am extremely paranoid that the old ladies will (a) find out that I talk to boys and (b) ban me from church.
  • Writing a bullet point about my butt between bullet points about church members makes me extremely uncomfortable.
  • New subject: my fish is still alive.

Skirts and nice butts are two things that naturally go well together.

My grandma didn't respond well when she found out about my tattoo. She specifically said "I don't approve of that." This weekend, though, I found out that my tattoo, which says "Stand Strong," is actually in Proverbs.

So I should have told my grandma that it's in the bible, so suck it!

Ha, she would have beat my ass though if I said that!

What is your tattoo? Old ladies are funny. I'm pretty sure all the old ladies at my church disapprove of my nose ring... I know for a fact that they disapprove of my casual dress. But they're not the boss of me. Or you.

Has anyone told you how awesome you are today? I have both tattoos and a piercing so I know what you mean. You constantly crack me up and make me smile. Bless your heart. :)

The old ladies may disprove of the tattoos and piercings and what-not, but you have to remember that in their generation, these things were frowned upon and rare. Today, I can think of more people with a tattoo or piercing (not including the traditional bottom-of-the-ear piercing for girls, or whatever you want to call it).

It's more or less become a trademark of our generation that you end up with a tattoo or piercing at some point. So, with that in mind, I don't think you should worry about what they think of you. Either that, or you can go out of your way to break their stereotype. Your call. ;)

Disclaimer: I have neither piercing nor tattoo, nor do I plan to acquire either anytime soon.

@JaceFuse: *facepalm*

Old ladies aren't the only ones that take issue with tattoos and piercings. When I was 15 I told my youth pastor I was getting an eyebrow ring. He threatened to banish me FOREVER. I laughed at fist but then I realized he wasn't joking.

I have a tattoo that I have had for 3 years now, and I still hide it from my grandparents! They do not know I have it, so I continue to wear shirts with sleeves around them! :)

I bet old ladies forget, or just can't brush their teeth every night. And I disapprove of old ladies not doing that...

My first church would frown on both tats and piercings. But they came around and accept everyone but they believe every bible, except the KJV, is basically produced by the devil to confuse modern day Christians as they are inaccurate and blah blah... lol

My second church cares not what someone looks like, does, has, eat, smells like, ect... Heck, the preacher digs it when people have tats with a story. He also digs it when 'those different' kids with piercings come to church and trust Jesus. I think he understands and sees people how God sees them...

My buddy's church plant in Boston actually has a member who tattooed john 3:16 on his forearm... a couple years ago he had plans to make his ex wife disappear mob style (as he had connections)... God doesn't care.

You tattoo is awesome. It is an easy limbo button target and it draws attention to what lies beneath (the skirts)

and most of all, it meets SexyBeast's standards for approval :)
