That's "Carpe Diem," Latin for "seize the day" on her ring finger.
When I asked her about it, she explained that, twenty years ago, she was married and was exasperated with her husband, because she felt that he rarely paid attention to her.
To prove a point, she removed her wedding ring and went out and got the tattoo, just to see if he would notice.
Not surprisingly, she said it took months before he asked her what was on her hand. Her suspicions had already long been confirmed, but the fact that it took him so long to notice only solidified her concerns.
Needless to say, the marriage ended. But, as they say, tattoos are forever. Yvonne has a constant reminder to seize the day and a cautionary tale for men everywhere - better pay attention, guys!
Thanks to Yvonne for sharing her cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
