Once Upon - Lorraine Etherington

Posted on 20 March 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

I have LONGED to get a Spurs Tattoo for as long as I can remember - since I started supporting Spurs in 1979 at the tender age of 7.

I never thought I'd ever get one as they don't seem to suit women. However, when my husband said he wanted an A***nal shield done, I thought "it's now or never!"

I endured 40 minutes of searing pain in my lower back but it was worth it. I love my tattoo and will never regret having it done - I will still be showing it off if I reach my twilight years. Spurs, you bring me heartache and pain, but I love you still.
