She decided to do it, but then she called me from his house crying because she was scared, so I walked over. She said she couldn’t do it, so I said, ‘Well, what if I go first?’ I’ve always been a ‘fuck it’ kind of person. I got a Capricorn sign on my bikini line because I wanted something that will always be me, even when I’m 85. The next morning I asked my mom if I could get a tattoo and she said, ‘No, you’re 14!’ to which I replied, ‘What if I already got one?”
