Okay. So I want to get a tattoo for my (still living) grandmother. I was raised by her and my mother. I might have grown up without a father but I definitely had two parents. After we moved out of her house and I could drive, I'd spend a week with her and then a week with my mom and alternate like that. I'm her first grandkid and we have a deep connection because of how I grew up.
I want her to write a little note to me and I want her words to me on my forearm forever. The problem is she says she hates tattoos. So I would like help on ideas how to convince her to do this for me. My aunt is already on my side and is also trying to convince her for me but no luck yet.
She has a history of hating things until I do them.. then she likes them. She thought stretched ears were horrendous until I did it and now she thinks my ears are beautiful. As a matter of fact, she's the one who bought me most of my plugs and hanging jewelry. I have other tattoos and she protested my getting them but after she admitted they were nicer than she thought they'd be. She thought hockey was an awful sport until I became a fan, now she watches it more than I do. She hated the fights in hockey until I explained why they help the team, now she cheers the fighters on. She thought the idea of pink hair was atrocious until I dyed mine pink. The list just goes on and on.
So I KNOW she'll love my tattoo for her AFTER I get it. But I can't seem to convince her to let me do it. I mean, the idea of taking a note from a birthday card has crossed my mind but I want her permission.
