It worked out well, since it is on the inside of my foot. It really isn't very noticeable, and if I wear shoes with ankle straps, you can't see it all. I never really advertised it, especially once I started teaching. I didn't want to be "that teacher with tattoos." It is 15 years later, and I actually still like it. Take an up close look at it so that you can see the hearts. They even have a little white shaded area to give them some dimension:
I never thought my tiny little tattoo looked like anything other than two little hearts. Well, here is a little story about teaching high school..... Every once in awhile somebody would notice my tattoo and be all, "Miss! When did you get that tattoo?!?!?" And I would say, "Ten years ago!" And they would think I was cool and want to see it up close. I usually did not put my foot up on a chair and let them look closely at it, because I didn't really think it was appropriate. UNTIL - one day, a student said, "Miss! Do you have a mushroom tattooed on your ankle?" I was mortified. I am not, nor ever have been, the type of person that would have anything to do with mushrooms, MUCH LESS get one tattooed on my body. I was like, "NO! It is tiny hearts!!!!" Although, upon further inspection, I could see why she asked that. If you look from the right direction and are not too close, it actually does kind of look like a mushroom.
You better believe I put my foot all the way on top of the desk and pointed out the hearts.
