DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have had many discussions regarding tattoos. She would say she wanted one; I'd be against it.
Well, just before her birthday she had her best friend, a tattoo artist, give her a small tattoo of a dragonfly with dots representing our four children. I didn't know about it for about six weeks, until I walked up behind her at her computer desk and noticed it on her upper shoulder. Our kids knew and hadn't said anything.
