I got this lightbulb tattoo on my inner right ankle on my 30th birthday. Designed my friend @daveselden in 1998, it was the printer’s logo on my self-published, self-made chapbook of poems that was my honors thesis. I waited eight years to get it — all because of something my dad once said in an aloof moment: “Fine, if you still want a tattoo when you’re 30, I guess I’d be okay with it.” I thought he made a good point, so I did wait. On my 30th birthday, I got this tattoo and then bought my wedding dress. Posts about this day, the day my husband proposed and more on FIRST PAGE LAST (www.firstpagelast.com).
