If you know me well in real life, you would know that I don’t have any piercings on my body. Wearing earrings had never appealed to me. People used to tell me that I’d for sure change my mind for my wedding because I’d want to wear studs on that day. My wedding day was almost eight years ago and I still don’t have any piercings. My mother-in-law has been sad because she can’t give me earrings as gifts and I won’t let my baby girl get her ears pierced. After having zero desire of wearing any earrings for 44 year, I suddenly have had this itch to get my ears pierced. This idea came into my head one day a couple of months ago and I haven’t been able to shake it out of my head. Small studs on my ears suddenly sounds inviting to me. I don’t know what changed. It just came so suddenly. And then, more recently, in the last few days, I have had this urge to get a tiny tattoo maybe on my wrist or on the back of my neck. Again, if you know me well like my husband does, you’d be surprised that this even crossed my mind. But it did. And it surprises me. I have been browsing online for ideas of tiny tattoos, and I am drawn to simple designs and lines that are delicate and subtle. Maybe a few simple strokes that represent my twins and me. I don’t know what I’d get, but the desire has grown stronger and stronger. I really don’t know where all these changes come from. Maybe approaching 45 is creating some sort of emotional currents in me that need to be manifested physically? The human mind is so peculiar. I don’t know where this will lead, but I have a feeling that these urges will result in studs on my ears and permanent ink on my body. If/when that happens, I will for sure show you all.
