I have a couple tattoos and desperately want to get another!
I got my first when I was 18. At the time, I had just graduated from high school and I was struggling with the reality of being on my own, and where I wanted to go. This was right after the release of [name_f]Moana[/name_f], and I loved the song “[name_m]How[/name_m] Far I’ll Go”. The idea of “the line where the sky meets the sea” was so beautiful to me because it described how I wanted to go away to college and into the unknown (Frozen II was not a thing yet haha ). I designed this little sunset symbol a few months before I got the tattoo, and I got it on the inside of my left ankle because that’s where my mom has her tattoo.
(Not the best image but it’s a hard spot to photograph so it’s the only one I have!)
I got my second tattoo in [name_f]October[/name_f] 2018. It’s the constellation for my sun sign: [name_m]Taurus[/name_m]. I got it on the outside of my left wrist/forearm, which was definitely my favorite spot of the two. [name_f]My[/name_f] pain tolerance is pretty high, and I’m an adrenaline junkie, but I actually really enjoyed the process, to the point where I want to get another in the same place on my other arm! I really don’t have a reason for it beyond the fact that I am a [name_m]Taurus[/name_m] (shocker) and I thought it would be cool.
(Ignore cringey instagram filter lmao).
I really want to get a third, like I said. [name_f]My[/name_f] next one I think will be on my right arm, just below the pit (?) of my elbow. I want the word “author” in typewriter font. 1) Because I’m a writer and my dream is to publish something in the future, and 2) Because I love the idea that you are the author in your own life and you get to write your story. I have others on my list but that one will hopefully be the next.
So interesting reading everyone else’s responses! I love talking tattoos!
