Once upon a time, Emily and I wanted to get matching tattoos. For quite awhile, we were considering variations of the “family infinity” tattoo you’ve probably seen all over Pinterest.
As we talked about the design more and more (and I sketched and re-sketched designs), we realized that we didn’t want the same tattoo as a bunch of people on Pinterest. And since it was just the two of us getting tattoos, we thought that some type of sisters tattoo would be a better idea.
So I started writing (and rewriting) “sisters” on scrap paper. I quickly realized that the way I drag my pen subtly makes the “S” look like infinity symbols.
So we took this idea to our tattoo artist (Skully of Jedi Tattoo in Waukesha Wis.) who thickened up the lines a bit. We’re pretty happy with how they turned out.
I love knowing that the only other person in the world with this exact tattoo is my sister. I also love knowing that she we have a little bit of each other with us at all times. All I have to do is look down at my wrist and I feel close to her.
