Getting inked in San Francisco

Obviously this is something that is going to be a part of me for ever and ever so I do think very very carefully before settling down in the artist’s chair. I mean, laser hair removal is painful enough, I am not going through tattoo removal as well!

Last summer while in Victoria I got my lovely “Mother and Sons” tattoo . It was something I had really wanted to do for awhile and I love that I got it in my hometown, while holidaying with my beloved parents and kids. It makes it that much more special, and it started me thinking….for each new tattoo, why not get it while traveling?

So this year, before heading to California for BlogHer I messaged my gorgeous friend Tiff of MyDirt fame and we decided to book ourselves in at a highly recommended tattoo shop (Black Heart Tattoo) with a highly recommended artist name Cody Miller (even his name is awesome non?). Not 30 minutes after we touched down in SFO we were off to Valencia and sitting in his chair. He might have taken a bit of time to loosen up to this gaggle of Canadian mamas but we had him smiling by the end of the night and to pose for a pic with us!

And this tattoo? This is very personal of course. This is about my kids….my biggest boy, my littlest boy and the little girl that we never had the chance to meet…..
