Lemonade from lemons

Don’t tattoo your boyfriend’s name on your body.

Don’t tattoo your boyfriend’s name on your body.

Don’t tattoo your boyfriend’s name on your body.

A new client last week has “Matthew” on the inside of her wrist. (The photo above is not the client’s wrist. She is not that hairy!)

Problem is, Matthew is no longer the love of her life. (I know, you are stunned. This never happens.)

Laser removal of the tattoo is:

a. painful

b. expensive

c. not guaranteed

She has found a resolution that will mitigate the damages.

Under “Matthew” she will add 7:7. Biblically speaking, Matthew 7:7 reads:

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

I am sure that someday the tattoo will mean that to her. But for a long time every time she looks at her wrist all she will see is a reminder of her short-sighted impetuous youth.

When will we learn that a relationship is far more likely to fade away than a tattoo?

At least the boy’s name wasn’t Fred.
