Minerva's Breakdown

Dear Minerva:

I have always been into body art and I have been saving up for a tattoo for a long time. I have consulted with different people over the years and I have a good idea of what I want. I am in my 30s and not just going through some rebellious phase. I’ve brought tattoos up around some of my family a few times and they have really negative viewpoints about tattoos. I worry I’ll disappoint them but I also want to commemorate the achievements I have made. How do I move forward with getting the tattoos I want and still avoid judgment?
