I want a tattoo, yes i won't deny it, but coming from a African home and background, making my family understand that is impossible. When i first came to America, one of the first things my mum told me was don't date black american men and you can get any body art(piercings) but no tattoo's. i wondered why she even bothered to use the word body art since it mainly en-captures tattoo's and rarely the latter.
I can count the number of times i've had to trick her and tell her i'm getting a tattoo to see her response,maybe it might have changed. Over the years,it hasn't and i guess it never will. I asked her what might the reason be for not getting one? and she claims it's in the Bible not to, and in her Christian background and my upbringing as one,i can't get it. Now, i believe in God, i'm a born Methodist but i never viewed tattoo as anything bad. I believe the art of tattoo's even came from Africa so i wonder why my mum disagrees. I am a well grown 25 year old student who can decide to go against her wishes and get it and she will surely get over it but a part of me feels like once i get that tattoo,she will succumb to her fears of me being fully Americanized from my African ways and knowing my mum,i know she will feel like she has lost me to the world.
Based on my mother's fears,tradition,religion, and i want to believe her love for me, i will not get a tattoo. I already seem Americanized enough to my mum and i think if i go any further to get this tattoo it will definitely break our mother and daughter relationship. On that note,today,i declare myself tatts free but guess what? as a friend,if you ask for my advice,i will definitely ask you to get one, and don;t ask me why.......

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog in the
near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
for something completely unique. P.S My
apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Hi, I do believe your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however when opening
in IE, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful blog!

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's
both educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not
enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.
