Well I’d have to say there are a lot of people celebrating today. Why? Because I said most of my life that “Hell would freeze over before I ever got a Tattoo.”
I won’t go into the whole story on this blog but my Nephew “Chad Koeplinger” is my only living relative from my side of the family. My Sister, Becky passed when Chad was only 15 and he was more or less faced with finding his way on his own.
Today he is probably one of the top five tattoo artist in the world. He has traveled all 50 states, written 3 books and has traveled to over 60 countries including North Korea. He is truly an amazing individual and owns a tattoo parlor in Nashville, Tennessee and has 7 other artist working for him.
After going through cancer treatment and some other serious health conditions I decided that I wanted Chad to give me a tattoo to help me remember what is most important in my life. Family & Faith.
So today Chad gave me my very first Tattoo. My daughter Angie videotaped the entire experience. It is about 14 minutes long and I know that in today’s society that is almost an eternity. However if you are interested and what to hear some amazing thoughts from this remarkable individual I would hope you spend the time and watch and listen to the video.
The wonderful feeling and emotional uplift I received from this experience was nothing less than remarkable.
Monday I had some physical set backs and it was really difficult to see anything positive in my future. I think a lot of people feel that way sometimes and they cannot find the reason to keep going. Chad gave me that reason.
So I hope you will watch the video and more importantly listen to the conversation and gain some benefit from it.
Enjoy your day and be careful!
