"Let me preface this with the fact that I have over 30 tattoos and only three that mean something more than 'this is pretty, this is me, and I want it.'
'Bad Decisions' as a tattoo seems like, well, a bad decision in itself, especially accompanied by a pint glass. But to me it's more than that — it will always be more than that. "Bad decisions" was a cheers after a drink, and a promise to a friend to live one day at a time and every day to its fullest, to make the most of everything. But it's also a reminder, to me, that you're still responsible for your actions. Bad decisions can lead you down a dark, terrible path that you can't come back from. It's a memorial tattoo and it's for a friend that went too far, that left us all reeling in the aftermath of something horrible. It's a constant reminder, and I will never forget.
