My (then) 17 year old niece was bound and determined to have a softball related teddy bear placed somewhere on her body. Softball was her life and she was being scouted by universities 2 states away. We (wife and I) begged, cajoled, talked heart to heart, pointed out older women with green stains on their arms from faded and sagging tattoos, etc. until she agreed to put it off.
The softball thing fell through and she was heading off to school on her now completed journey to become a dentist.
Every now and then, she thanks us for talking her into waiting as whatever she would have been interested in having permanently inked into her body back then would hold no interest for her today.
