    Have you gotten a tattoo in Aruba?
    AIDTM THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind?

    No Aruba tattoos but I do have a dragonfly tattoo and they have those in Aruba so it’s kind of related. I thought I would like to get something written in Papiamento like “Live your best life” on the inside of my wrist but never did it.

    Not an official Aruba tattoo, but I do have 2 sea turtles on the top of my foot. My friend did get a flower tattoo in Aruba a few years ago. She went to the tattoo place near the McDonald’s on the main road near Soprano’s/Casa Tua. She was so happy with it she went the next year and got a butterfly (same place and artist). She got them done on her last day since she knew she’d have to stay out of the water. They are her only tattoos and they’re small and tasteful. Peg, I’ve been waiting to get a dragonfly tattoo since the pandemic started. Hopefully soon!

    I got my dragonfly about 20 years ago and still like it. Although I have seen some more beautiful ones since. It doesn’t seem like tattoos are a big thing in Aruba. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed a tattoo shop.

    I have a kitty on the underside of my arm.
    I have considered a shamrock, but I am leaning towards one is enough for me.
    Since I am in the pool every day, I did keep a waterproof band aid on it to keep it dry and out of the sun.
    In Aruba, keeping it dry and out of the sun seems to me to be a real bother.

    No Aruba-related tattoos and have not gotten one there (yet - considered it last time), but I have several.

    None Aruba related. I did briefly consider getting one the last time I was there, I scoped out a place that is located in the high rise area and they do nice work (from their website which I will try to find). Ultimately, I decided against it as getting a tattoo on vacation is not something I'd carve out time for and the aftercare means avoiding sun and water, which is a big heck no for me.
