A Tattoo Life by Joanna Sterling

My first tattoo was Chris & Mandy with two hearts.  A clever tattooist over inked the ‘M’ with a curly swirly ‘S’ when I met Sandy and added some more hearts.  A year later I added m19.6.2002 and red hearts. Back to the tattooist for Joel b10.09.2002, Fergus b16.08.2003, Jewel b23.08.2004. Added an angel holding a gun next to Joel with the words joined the angels 12.10.2018. In 2019 didn’t bother going to the tattoo parlour, used needle and ink to score line through Sandy and my name.  January 2020, new year, new beginning, Hazel, no red hearts.
