My family and I went on our yearly family trip, we decided to go to Hawaii for 2 weeks. It was one the best trips I had ever been on my sister had just turned 18 and recently graduated from high school. One night out in Honolulu after dinner we were on our way back to the hotel when we passed a tattoo shop and it was my dads genius idea to all get something. My sister immediately said I want my belly pierced, I had always wanted my lip pierced so I opted for that we made my mom pierce her cartilage while my dad got a tribal tattoo. My mom and dad both have a few tattoos not to much and none that can really be seen so it was nothing new for them, but for them to allow us to do something was a whole different story. I was only 16 and I had 2 years before I was able to get something on my own so I was stoked when my dad said we could all get something. We got into the tattoo shop and the artist immediately started on my dad’s tattoo while my mom started the piercing. She got her upper cartilage pierced and my sister was up next my mom and I both held her hand because she was freaking out. It was finally my turn I sat down in the chair with my stomach full of butterflies, the piercer marked my lip with a marker put some sort of clamps on my lip and bam he pierced me. It was a major pinch that I will probably never forget. My piercing is all healed up nicely and my trip was very memorable, I will never forget my Hawaii trip.
