    the spontanous tattoo was such a cool idea, and the tattoo looked great and had meaning to her. i think someone won't regret something they come up with on the spot as much as when they keep overthinking what is right or wrong (such as me who has been wanting a tattoo for ten years but never gotten one. maybe i need to seek discomfort more lol).
