The accidental tattoo

I love tattoos.

On men.

On women.

On non-binary people.

It’s all very decorative and eye catching.

I have five tattoos – for a while I would get a new tattoo every time I visited my sister in Reno.

She has MANY tattoos and is my enabler.

We actually have two matching tattoos.

Once upon a time, when I was in love with a man who didn’t deserve me, I imagined that our love would last forever and so when I stumbled across this design, I wanted it:

tattooA heart with an infinity symbol.

I imagined it meant ETERNAL LOVE.

The thing that I didn’t know is that the design I selected is a variation of this design:

tattooThis is the symbol for POLYAMORY.

Yes, indeed.

I inadvertently permanently marked my body with a design symbolizing polyamory.

Ironically, this is my least favorite tattoo on account of it reminds me of the man I was dating at the time.

I’m pleased it’s on my shoulder blade so I don’t have to see it every time I look in the mirror.

But take this as a lesson from me:  Before getting a tattoo, DO YOUR HOMEWORK.

Or else you might have to wind up being polyamorous, like me.

Just kidding.

It means ETERNAL LOVE.
