I got the tattoo for her late Saturday night and already shared it on Instagram and my personal Facebook, but I couldn't not share it here, too. It came out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. I'm in what feels like the minority, but I'm not a spiritual person. I put way more stock into the physical body and while I do agree Wylie will always be in our hearts, there was a nice sense of peace to know she's finally with me forever. Just knowing there is now a piece of her with me that will remain with me until I'm no longer here, it just sort of brings a little clarity.
The only thing keeping me from staring at it all day long is the fact it's on the back of my shoulder so that's a little hard, but it's still tempting to do so. It's more beautiful than I could ever have imagined -- a beautiful tribute to our beautiful daughter who I now can carry with me for the rest of my life.
(And huge thanks to Ted Mendoza at No Hard Feelings in Coral Springs for being the best tattoo artist ever and being super patient because I'm willing to guess I'm the worst person on the planet to tattoo.)
