Here’s a story: ⠀⠀
I was born and raised in a very strict household. Both parents were and still to this date are Pentecostal & Haitian 😩. Growing up as a teenager, life wasn’t the easiest for me because we’ll i couldn’t do a THING! I mean NOTHING. My parents had 3 rules, we called it the 3L’s; Lecol, Leglize, Lakay — translation: School, Church & Home. Anything outside out that would be No, so don’t bother asking.
Skirts were all i could wear, not one pair of jeans. Jewelry was not an option 😩. When i turned 21 tho? Ohhhh when i turned 21... I totally rebelled. I decided i was gonna get my ears pierced and get a tattoo. Like who gets excited about piercing their ears at 21 🙄🙋🏾♀️ I told one of my friends i wanted a tattoo and so did she. She was much older then me so she knew all the spots and had many connects. We ended up at some dudes house 🤦🏾♀️ an ex-convict who did tattoos while in prison 😩 that charged us $40 CRAZY, right? A number of things could’ve happened, i know🤦🏾♀️ When he asked what i wanted, i told him i wanted some eyes. He looked at me and said are you sure? Told him yes and he went to drawing. Don’t ask me why the eyes! because i don’t know 🤷🏾♀️ . I later found out that females with lower back tattoos of eyes were called tramp stamps 😳 WHAT? I’m no tramp 😩 but it was too late.
One day Mom calls me into her room. She says sit down i need to talk to you. At this point my heart was pounding, like what am i in trouble for now? She hands over the Bible to me and said read this verse out loud. Girl, when i saw what i was about to read, I died. Leviticus 19:28 "Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the LORD.
She hit me up with the scriptures ya’ll 😩 i looked at her and she said “ i don ker how u get it, u tek it off rat naow ” tell dem yo moder want it off. 😩— accent go hard🤣
I’m 37 now and have out grown that girl on so many levels. I’m honestly considering a laser removal, I’m in need of a tramp stamp deliverance 🙌🏾 Let the church say amen ✨
Have any referrals? 🤔 comment below, I’d really appreciate it 😘
