I've always wanted a tattoo, but I never knew what I wanted to have permanently inked on my body. There's no beauty in a random bird on your foot if it means nothing to you. My boyfriend's siblings love tattoos and his sister has been trying to help me decide on what to get for years. Then, almost a year ago, we went out for a night of bowling, and came home with tattoos.
And just like that, Oklahoma found a permanent place on my wrist (and on Taylor's ankle), and in my heart.
It's more than a love for my home state. To me, this little tattoo represents everything I hold dear: my family, my history, my friends, all in one place.
