commemorative ink

A few of The Cheerios approached Saucy with an idea about how to commemorate their stellar season. Saucy wasn't so sure at first, but they were adamant and eventually won her over.


The only problem was obtaining permission from their parents. This bit was easily solved, Saucy sort of fudged up some fake identifications. Besides, Saucy is almost like a parent to them. You might recall when they wanted their ears pierced at the end of the first season and Saucy got written permission from the mothers of Dee, Daisy Duke and Beegie - it's kind of the same thing. Only not a piercing.

These Cheerios decided to do something a little more permanent. They'd been talking about it for a while and put a great deal of thought into it. They'd planned it for at least three days.

Saucy helped them with the artwork and they took it with them... they all wanted the same image. They wanted something that reflected their sense of team unity and their lurrve of cupcakes.

It didn't take too terribly long. In fact, Saucy is kind of generally repulsed by needles but the whole thing was fascinating and each tattoo only took about forty five minutes.

Unfortunately, photography is not permitted inside the shop. It must be a privacy issue. At any rate, they are all under eighteen years of age and Saucy didn't want to tip that off to the shop owner. Where we live, you have to be over eighteen to get ink done.


Here they are - outside and relieved for the hard part to be over! They're all bandaged up. They can't wait to be completely healed to show off these beauties... they just look a little bit inflamed and red right now.

If you would like to see what the image looks like you can visit the tattoo shop's website. They liked it so much, they posted it. Click here.

I can't believe I fell for it... I was all "She WHAAAAAAT?" the fudging permission and breaking the law seemed way out of character, but I totally forgot about it being the first of April, so I was just aghast.

Well played, Saucy... well played indeed.

Unfortunately, I have known you for so long and am a bit of a prankster myself, that I thought, "Its April Fool's Day... hum... I wonder what Saucy has up her sleeve, today!" ;p

I totally fell for it and thought it was very unlike you, since you find tattoos loathsome. Great on!

Well....I just saw this and went to my lovely daughter shown in the pic 'YOU DID WHAT - WHERE - WHAT?????" - then she ran away from me giggling saying "no - I'm not showing you" - then laughing even harder she says "Mom - didn't you read the comments - it's a joke" - HA HA - you got me on this one. "Snookie" was just about to be in serious trouble - Love it....Mexi Mama
