My first tattoo

Got my first tattoo today!

This morning while pondering my breakfast of waffles, it suddenly dawned on me what tattoo I should get. You see, Aviva and I have talked about getting a tattoo for years, but we’ve never settled on a design. And, you do have to live with it (and if you’re Jewish you live with it forever).

So, after handling the latest crisis in our move from Chicago to Los Angeles, I went to Nathan’s at the suggestion of the new woman at our apartment complex, Amanda. Javier did a great job I think, and we had fun doing it (it hurt a lot at first, but I got sort of used to it and even watched some of the filling-in).

So, here it is – its on the inside of the right wrist!
