One of my best friends, Anju Venki got tatted yesterday for her 18th birthday, and it excited me even more for my first tat. Is your 18th birthday the perfect day to get your first tat? I think so. It's like a coming-of-age ceremony almost -- like how at 10, I got my first pair of earrings and at 13, I was finally able to make my instagram and snapchat accounts.
18, the age I can finally do things like get tatted or get hitched without needing my parent's permission. The age I need to be to work at many retail or casino jobs. The age where I'm suddenly old enough to go to jail. All these things I can't do when I'm 17 years and 364 days old, but add one more day, and I'm an adult! Yet every birthday I have, I don't feel different, does anyone?
