Thursday: Dutch Lovers.

SO, there is this place in Las Vegas called the forum (you can guess which resort/casino it's connect to).  It has hundreds of shops, restaurants, art displays, etc. You feel like you're in another world entirely. 

I've also wanted a tattoo but could never figure out what exactly. Even now that I think I know what I would get, I'm still too chicken to committ to forever. Maybe that's why I'm still single.....I digress.  My family is Dutch and I remember growing up running around my grandma's house in clogs all the time. I thought they were so cool and fun. It was dress up for me. My sisters and I always had sets up dutch nesting dolls as well. I loved playing with them--setting them all out, stacking them all up. Okay, so maybe they weren't all that fun actually but I still loved them.

I decided a few months ago that my tattoo would be that-Dutch nesting dolls. It means more to me than something random and I don't really want Jesus tattooed on me just yet--I'm not ever NOT going to be Dutch so bring it, Holland.

This little Dutch couple was displayed in a window in the Forum while we were harassing Las Vegas. I could not help but love the ridiculousness of it. It's traditional with a flair.  I love the uniqueness of it.  I plan on a fairly traditional nesting doll, but this nonetheless, did push me to become a little more creative (and serious) about this tattoo. Hopefully one day I'll blog about it actually happening! HA!
