Woman gets Kmart logo tattooed on her ankle because she is 'addicted' to the discount retail chain
There are innumerable ways to express your love for certain things and tattoos are one of them. For one particular mother, Crystal Fry, however, her love for a one shopping destination just had to be put down in ink permanently. For Fry, Kmart is the store where she has her fondest childhood memories, where she celebrated occasions, milestones, and new beginnings. The Australian decided to get the logo of the popular store permanently tattoed on her ankle after she admitted that she developed a sort of "addiction" for the discount retail chain. The proud mother shared her tattoo on a Kmart fan page on Facebook, saying she has absolutely no regrets over her decision to get the logo tattooed on her.
The Daily Mail reported that she wrote: "This happened today and no, I'm not regretting it and I won't regret it. There's always methods to my madness, it was meant to say "Kmart addict" but I was chicken and only got this far [laughing crying emoticon]." She also gave an explanation on her new tattoo and how it has a deeper meaning that is special to her.
She wrote: "The story behind getting this tattoo... my Kmart addiction, which started back when I was little and would go with my nan shopping at Kmart and having lunch at [cafe] once a week, good times. And still to this day I'm addicted going to Kmart every chance I get but wishing [cafe] was still around here so I could take my daughter there too. But the McDonald's in the food court will have to do [laughing crying emoticon]. There's so many Kmart stories over my 35 years, so many memories behind this one tattoo..."
Fry admitted that she had initially been too afraid to get the tattoo but then she finally mustered up the courage to get it done because it is her favorite retail chain. She said: "I was told I wouldn't do it and that I couldn't do it, I was told I would chicken out and I did for over a year but now it's done."
"I'm not regretting it one bit. I go back once this is healed to do any touch ups needed and to add the "addict" part. Others will look at me and go 'you bloody idiot why?!?' But I will continue to smile and say 'because I can'."
The social media post was picked up by Kmart Unhacks & Roasts and was published on their page to frenzied mobs of users who took to the comments section to let Fry know what exactly they thought of the tattoo. One user wrote: "If she doesn't get discounts from this she's missing out on a huge opportunity."
A second joked and wrote: "She will be sued for Copyright now." A third user could not help but add their comment to the section and said: "Hope she gets sponsorship for that momentous mistake."
