thirteen: tattoos & road trips

I finally decide on a dark blue tank top along with a pair of denim shorts and my favorite TOMS. After I change into the outfit, I go into the bathroom so I could brush my teeth and freshen myself up beforehand. I put on some deodorant after I brush my teeth and even spray myself with some great smelling Estee Lauder perfume I got for Christmas this past year from my mom.

After I finish up in the bathroom, I make my way back to my room so I could grab my purse. I grab my Vera Bradley purse from the door handle and put it over my shoulder after I make sure I had enough money with me, about forty. Harry must’ve already changed and was probably downstairs waiting for me. Guys have it so much easier than us, I swear. They just put on a pair of jeans and a shirt and are on their way. For us women, it takes us a long time to find one article of clothing to wear let alone an entire outfit.

As I walk out of my room, I realize my shoes must be downstairs again. I continue my way down the stairs and slip my shoes on that were near the door. After I put my shoes on, I walk in the living room to see Harry sitting and talking with the guys and Claire. He looks up and smiles as I enter the room. I can’t help the smile on my face as I look back at him. He was wearing some tight jeans along with a white tank top which showed off his tattoos on his one arm, along with a pair of shoes on his feet.

“You ready to go?” Harry asks as I walk into the room.

I give him a nod in response along with a smile. He stands up from his spot and makes his way over to where I stood. I pull out my keys from my bag so I could lock up the house along with my extra key for Claire’s car.

“You two have fun!” Claire calls out to us.

I turn to find her looking back at me with a smile on her face. I smile a bit and nod my head as I turn to walk toward the door alongside Harry. I head toward the door and reach for the handle but am stopped when I feel Harry’s hand hovering over mine. I look over at him and give him a slight smile before opening it. The smile never left his lips as he turns to walk out, holding the door open for me.

“T-thanks,” I mutter as I walk out on the porch.

“Welcome, love,” he replies as he walks out after me and shuts the door behind him. The two of us are soon making our way to the car that was parked in the driveway.

“So, where is this place we’re headed?” I ask as we both got in the car. I take my seat on the driver’s side while Harry gets in the front passenger seat beside me.

“I looked it up and it says only 12 miles from here, called ‘Body Electric Tattoo & Piercing’,” he says as he looks over at me and puts his phone in his front pocket.

I begin to type the name of the shop on the touch screen navigation panel on the dash. It is the first result that comes up so I tap it on the screen. We are soon on our way to this place. The two of us talk about random things on the way to where we were going.

“Are you thinking about getting one yourself?” he asked with a smile.

“I dunno,” I mutter as I tighten my hands on the steering wheel and slow down a bit as I come to a stop at a red light. “I’ve thought about it, but you heard me earlier, I don’t like needles, can’t stand ‘em,” I say with a slight laugh.

“Nothin’ to be afraid of babe, it’s not that terrifying,” he replies with a chuckle. I smile a bit and let out a nervous laugh.

“Better not be,” I mumble. He lets out a laugh and I could tell he was smiling.

A good ten minutes go by before I am pulling into the parking lot. I spot the tattoo place and begin to make my way over to there. I pull into a space I see near the front of the tattoo parlor, not too far off from the entrance. As I slow the car to a stop, I turn off the car and pull the key from the ignition. After we get out, I grab my purse, which had my money in it, and put the strap over my shoulder. I shut the door and lock up the car before I meet Harry up on the sidewalk where he waited for me.

I give him a small smile as we make our way to the door of the place. He reaches for the handle and pulls it open for me. “Thanks,” I tell him with a smile as I walk through the door, a bell jingling as I walk inside.

“No problem, babe,” he smiles as he walks in after me.

“Hey there,” a tall guy says stepping in the doorway that led to another room. “Welcome to ‘Body Electric’, I’m Brad, by the way,” he says with a smile; both arms were fully covered in tattoos and he had a beard, clad in jeans and a tank top which exposed his many tattoos. “What can I do for ya today? Here for a tat I take it?” he asks and crosses his arms over his chest. I give him a nervous smile before I turn to Harry who nods his head toward the guy.

“I wanted some new ink, mate, if you have time,” Harry tells the guy who nods his head.

“Follow me, man, and you can flip through the sketch books and find one you like,” he tells him and motions for him to follow. Harry just nods his head and begins forward. I just stand there and plan on sitting out here in the front while I wait for him but I am soon being grabbed my Harry pulling me forward by the hand. I smile a bit and follow the two of them in another room.

“What’ll it be? Any ideas?” he asks looking at Harry as he takes a seat in a reclining chair, like one you sit in at the dentist office. I slowly retract my hand from his and move to a nearby chair so I can sit.

“I want two, uh, olive branches or ferns, on my hips, if ya don’t mind,” he tells the guy.

“Alright, you have a picture as a model of how you want it?” the guy asks Harry who pulls his phone from his pocket.

To pass the time, I decide to look through a book of tattoos and stuff to get an idea if I want one. I soon begin to look through the book to search for one I may want. I soon come across a somewhat small dream catcher, which is one I’ve wanted for a while. It also seemed to fit me, because I was a big dreamer, always have been. A few minutes go by and I pull out my phone as I feel it vibrate in my purse.

“Almost done with the sketch and we’ll get to business,” he says a bit loudly and I lift my head to look at him slightly before I turn my attention back to my phone.

It was a message from my mom asking if I wanted to come have lunch with her, Dad and Jake later. I check the time to see it was a few minutes after noon. I begin to text her back and tell her I was out with Harry and that we could meet up in a bit. I also mentioned I will keep in touch and update her as we finish up here.

After I send the message, I drop my phone back in my bag. I look up and feel my breath hitch in my throat when I see Harry’s shoulder muscles broaden a bit as he takes off his shirt. The inked up guy brings the tattoo gun needle closer to his skin and begins to do his tattoos on his hips. I can’t help but stare at him, my mouth slightly open.

His jeans hung somewhat low on his body and I try to avert my eyes elsewhere. My eyes avert back to his exposed chest, tattoos all on display. Damn, he was good looking and I couldn’t bring myself to look away. As I look at him, I find him smiling over at me, arms propped behind his head. He was looking at me as well and I didn’t mind.

“Like the view, babe?” he asks, a wide smile on his face. I let out a nervous laugh before I shift my eyes away from his. He had to notice I was staring but I try to shake it off. I open my mouth to retort the same question back to him but I can’t find the words.

“Did ya find one ya like?” he asks me as the guy continues on doing his tattoo.

“I did, actually,” I reply with a smile.

“What is it?”

“A dream catcher, a medium sized one, not too big, on my side,” I say.

“That sounds ace,” he smiles.

“I can get started on yours, doll, once I finish up your boyfriend’s ink,” Brad says and looks over at me. Did I just hear him right? I push the dumb thoughts from my mind as I give him a friendly enough smile and look at him.

“Uh, we’re just friends,” I say with a hint of nervousness to my voice.

About an hour later, he is finishing up with the two tattoos he got on his hips; well the guy is, anyway. He puts some wax thing over the new tattoo(s) so it won’t mess up the ink or whatever. Harry soon stands up and stretches his legs from lying in the same spot for what seemed like forever. I soon feel my heart rate pick up just slightly when Harry takes two strides over to where I sat.

“If you’re ready, feel free to take a seat where he just was,” he tells me and I just nod my head as I rise up from the chair against a wall. I have no idea why I was so nervous.

“Love, I’ll hold your hand if ya want, it won’t be so bad,” Harry gives me a smile as I slowly trail over to the spot he just was. I smile back and nod my head slowly. He nods with a smile.

He grabs the chair I was sitting in and moves it over to where I was. Brad draws up a rough sketch of a dream catcher just how I pictured it, and how I told him I wanted it. Next, he asked where I wanted it placed. I wasn’t sure where exactly, though.

After a few minutes, I soon decide I want it on my left side. I end up having to bunch my shirt so he could get to my side, holding onto it with my open hand that I wasn’t using. I take in a slow breath as I feel the needle gun thing against my exposed skin. Harry laughs a bit as I grab his hand and tighten my grip on it a bit. I mumble a ‘shut up’ to him as he laces our fingers together so I had a better hold on his hand. As stupid as it sounds, I felt butterflies erupting inside at the gesture and I didn’t care. What the hell is he doing to me? Why do I like him so damn much?

An hour later, he is finally finishing up with it. He puts the wax stuff over it and tells me to be careful. Before too long, we are finally going to the front of the shop. I’m glad I got through it and I can’t believe I just got a tattoo of all things. Harry ends up paying for it, including mine, even after I tell him I’ll pay for mine. The two of us are soon on their way to Santa Monica for the day. Before we get on the road, I shoot a message to my mom telling her we were on our way. I even text Claire, telling them we were headed to spend the day with my family, which was going to be fun. The drive to Santa Monica, Harry and I talk about the most random things.
