Tattoos and Cliches

It must be at least 8, no maybe 9 months ago now my doctor told me I'd never lose any weight without lap band surgery. Flash forward to last month and it's now well realistically it'll be at least a 3 year wait maybe 2 if your lucky on the public waiting list so we should probably just keep going with what I have been doing and see how it continues to go.

I'd like to be able to say I told you so to him, but in actually fact I went off in a silent steam with the thought I'll show you running through my head. I think the victory is in some small way still mine.

Soon I make a return trip to my dietician, I fear I've done a bit too much socialising this last month too much going out for coffee or eating out for dinner. Hopefully my efforts to counter balance this will have paid off and the scales won't reveal anything too detrimental. All I'm hoping for really is not to have put any weight back on. If I've lost some it will be an added bonus at this stage.

I was reading an interview with a vegan tattooist based in California, and I was quite intrigued. I'm a huge fan of cruelty free cosmetics and personal products, I suppose cruelty free tattoos fit the bill as well.

Why am I talking about tattoos, cliches and weight loss? I think it has almost become a bit of a cliche, a lot of people seem to share the goal at the end of their weight loss to get tattooed. I feel I am adding myself to this cliche, not that I really mind, by saying hopefully come the end of the year provided I've made my goal I'll start looking locally for an artist that suits, if they use vegan inks it'll be an added bonus.
Although I have noticed a beauty spa at the other end of my state advertising vegan manicures and pedicures. I'm just pleased to see cruelty free becoming easier to find.

I hope your trip to the dietician goes well. Maintaining he balance would be a bonus!!
A vegan tattoo, would that be the ink?? Or is the needle made from a bamboo pipette?? What would you have for your tattoo????
