Hey guys, my name is Laura.
00:01
And today I'm gonna be talking about a tattoo.
00:04
Y'all didn't know I had a tattoo.
00:06
Did you a while ago when Michael Jackson died, I was like, I'm
00:09
going to get a Michael Jackson tattoo to honor him and I drew
00:13
it and everything.
00:15
It was super cool.
00:16
I was super proud of it.
00:17
And I showed my mom, I'm like, look mom because she also likes
00:19
Michael Jackson.
00:20
I'm like, look mom.
00:21
I'm going to get this Michael Jackson tattoo.
00:23
What do you think?
00:23
And she goes, Laura sit de la casa.
00:32
I was just like, damn, like, I can't even honor Michael Jackson
00:35
on my skin.
00:35
Fine, whatever.
00:36
A few years later, my friends and I are walking down South Beach
00:40
just, you know, doing our thing and we walked by a tattoo parlor
00:45
and we were all like, wouldn't it be funny if we all got matching
00:48
tattoos of A dot And we were all like, ha Yeah, that would be
00:52
so funny.
00:52
And so we walk up to a tattoo parlor and we're like, hey, how
00:55
much is it for a dot Tattoo?
00:57
And they were like, 0 60 bucks.
00:58
And I was like, that's so stupid.
01:01
A dot Tattoo for $60.
01:03
Hell, no.
01:04
And they're like, ok, what about 40 bucks?
01:06
And we're like 40 bucks for a dot Tattoo?
01:09
You swear to pay 40 bucks for a dot Tattoo?
01:12
We're like, what about 20?
01:13
We're like, oh damn, that's not a bad price for a dot Tattoo
01:17
Do you want to get a dot Tattoo?

01:30

01:33
And I was like, wow, I'm really nervous because this is happening
