They live far away as I am in Boston for school right now. My mom and I got the tattoos together right before I left for school. This was the last big thing that we did before I left for school.
We thought about getting other stuff (other tattoo) from FRIENDS initially but, we couldn't really settle on anything. We felt that the logo is really simple and a lot of people can relate to it and it will become a conversation starter.
My mom wanted to get one for a really long time, which made me, too, to get one. It was her suggestion; she suggested it. We had gotten other tattoos together, though not matching ones. This is a weird bonding thing that we do; we get tattoos together.
I've had this tattoo for a little more than three years, somewhere around that time.
Over the time, I feel like FRIENDS has gotten far more popular, all of a sudden. Once it got on Netflix, it exploded again in popularity. So, I get a lot more comments about it. But, it (the tattoo) has always had the same meaning. When my mom and I stop together, we see people going 'Oh my goodness, so cool'.
In 10 or 20 years from now, I probably will think that this was a weird idea. But, I don't have any regrets this far and I don't think that I, ever, will. It is a weird tattoo, for sure, and like I said, it has gotten weird conversations started. Though, it has been pretty good most of the time and it will be a good way to think about my childhood and growing up with my mom.
