How would I know…as a fifty-something divorce lawyer, that twenty-something divorcees have taken to celebrate their “freedom” with ink? Apparently, this is a new phenomenon heralded by the astute blogger of the website “Trash the Dress”.
So what does the newly divorced gal have etched on her arm, tummy, or ankle. Take your pick from the most popular:
“A Certain Darkness is Needed to See the Stars”
“I Climbed the Tree to See the World”
“Never a Victim, Forever a Fighter”
“You are what you love, not who loves you”
“Let Your Past Make You Better, Not Bitter”
“Never Look Back”
“Take These Broken Wings and Learn to Fly”
“And Though She is Little, She is Fierce”
After all, in a 2013 poll Pew Research discovered that 14% of Americans have a tattoo…that’s 45 million people. Why? Because it’s sexy and rebellious, they say.
Forget law as a career, head to tattoo school!
