TatTO-DO

I’ve been completely obsessed with tattoos lately. If you’ve read my previous posts, you’d know I currently have 5. All of mine so far are solid black, simple, and script (in some form or another).

But I have high aspirations. There are many more I want to get. Among those are still the lotus idea I mentioned before I’ve had for years. If dreams come true, I would love for Chris Garver to do that for me. I don’t know how likely it would be for us to go back to miami again. *fingers crossed* If not, whoever the tattoo artist ends up being, he or she has got to be good! The symbolism of it really strikes a chord with me. The idea of growing up through shit to become strong and beautiful. It’s a nice idea. Something I’d like to achieve. I’ve held off on getting it because I don’t feel I’m “there” yet. And also, I’m really picky. I have a million ideas about how I want it to look.

I’d also like something to take up my upper arm and shoulder, curling onto my back. I was thinking a phoenix. That is also highly symbolic. I don’t deserve it yet. So it’s still just an idea.

I do have something with more of a solid plan that I’m ready for. I won’t go into detail about it now because I’m sure once I do it, I’ll write something about it. I want a few soot sprites from My Neighbor Totoro behind my ear.

You may or may not realize that I’m in love with cupcakes. I think it would be fun to have a tattoo that is colourful and cute without having much depth to the meaning. Not everything has to be so serious.
