this is perhaps the most uniquely brilliant response to any meme, i love that my internet presence is such that you would believe i would INK A ONE DIRECTION/BABY RELATED THING on my body FOREVER AND EVER. i would PROBABLY NOT DO THIS, but. YOU KNOW. never say never???
If you had to suggest a tattoo for me based on what you know of me from my blog, what would it be?
"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology. You are magic. “
A PSA: if you, like me, did not purchase yr 1d/nirvana shirt in a timely fashion before the original went away to some mysterious redbubbly purgatory, i have RECREATED IT as cheaply as redbubble allows, but mostly for me (and anna), so it is not PROFESSIONAL QUALITY, but. IF ANYONE WANTS IT.
