Last fall, my very best girlfriend disappeared when hiking. There has been no trace of her or her boyfriend, who were out in the mountains together. We have been BFFs for 13 years and it has been hard wedding planning and everything, knowing that the one person I want to stand up for me at our wedding cannot be there. We got engaged after she disappeared, but I know that she would be thrilled for us and would be at our DW in a heart beat (as long as her medical residency would have allowed).

 

I have been thinking about getting a tattoo for awhile, and finally it hit me that I should get a sunflower as those are her favourites. I got the artist to create a tattoo of a sunflower with some vines coming off of it and in the vines it spells out her nickname. I LOVE it!! I have no regrets! It hurt, but thinking of her helped me through it for sure. The pain was definitely worth it, even if I hadn't done it for such personal reasons! IT was kind of short bursts of pain, and was especially tender over the tendons in my foot. If you're sure, do it! You only live once!

Thanks ladies, for the support! Here's the pic...it is showing up kind of big, so it's a nice close-up of my foot! cheesy.gif This picture was taken the day after the tattoo was done, so it's still a little red.

Your tattoo I think is a beautiful way to honor her memory and your friendship. She'll be there in spirit I'm sure, and the tattoo is a good representation of that. I feel like I'm reading about those stories I see on LA Ink. Very touching. When you get a chance, it would be nice to see the pic. :) Congratulations on your engagement and good luck on the rest of your planning for the big day!
