It seems our celebratory divorce tattoo movement has struck a nerve. Haters will hate. We’ve come to terms with the fact that no one understands what it’s like to be a young divorcee unless they have gone through it. Sure, it’s annoying to read articles and comments from those that just don’t get it (and as one of our clever members pointed out- might be the creators of those super ignorant “my first marriage will be my only marriage” memes), but every bit of media spreads the word and increases our chances of reaching more young divorced women in need. So, bring it on!
