If you live in a Nigerian home, you know that getting a tattoo is rough play. Nigerian parents are very dramatic when it comes to things like that. Your Nigerian father would constantly shake his head in disappointment every time he sees you while your Nigerian mother will scream and say you’ve killed her the first time she sees the tattoo.
There are several stages your mind goes through when you consider getting a tattoo in a Nigerian home.
“I can’t even try it. My parents will finish me.” But you continue thinking about it.
But then you consider how good it looks on people and how good it would look on you.
Next to begin considering getting a very small on somewhere you can hide it. Just a tiny one.
You’ve suddenly decided that you’re going to get one. Your mind is set. Nobody can change it. You must get that tattoo.
You’re now at the tattoo shop but common sense has suddenly returned to you. You think about how your mother is going to scream when she sees it. But it’s too late. The tattoo artist has already taken his pen from the basket of love.
The ink looks great. You’re proud of it. The deed is done. No going back. You reassure yourself: we go run am.
