Matching Tattoo with my Childhood Best Friend.

I’m privileged and lucky to say that I have a best friend who has been by my side from the very beginning and who I know will forever remain there.

My best friend is called Lauren Thomson.

It feels odd calling her ‘Lauren’ as I’ve always referred to her as ‘Lozza’ and whenever I introduce her to anyone or speak to/about her: It’s always Lozza.

Today Lozza and I got matching tattoos: An umbrella behind each of our ears on the right hand side. The significance of the umbrella is something that we both understand and that I don’t think anyone else would. That’s why we love it so much. It’s different, quirky and unique; just like us!
A friendship like ours is so hard to come by these days. I couldn’t imagine a life without Lozza. Not today, not tomorrow and not ever. I can see us now, 75 years old, going to the bingo (like we do already and have been doing since the minute we turned 18 years old) and still rocking our umbrella tattoos that we got today.

We’re attached now, in a really special way, and it feels nice.

Do you have an important/best friend in your life? Have you got a tattoo on your body representing someone significant in your life? What do you think about Lozza and I’s matching tattoos?

I’d love to hear from you.

(Lozza and I got our tattoos done at ‘From the Ashes’ in Cumbernauld Town Centre).

Until next time
