Almost three years ago, I wrote a blog post on here about me dreaming and imagining about getting a tattoo.
Well, it is official. I am almost 25 years old, and I figured that it is about time I finally went for it. I have booked my tattoo artist and everything. It took me a while to look for the perfect artist, but as soon as I saw his work, I knew I had to get him to do my tattoos.
I have had this idea for a few years now. I was a senior in high school when I first entertained the idea. I have changed over the years, but one thing has remained constant: my love for literature. For words. For the art of writing them and reading them.
I've always aspired to become a published writer, ever since I was a child. Mostly, I have always been a reader, and books mean a lot to me.
On my left wrist, it will be ONE shelf with books lined up. On my right wrist, it will be a quill and ink OR a fountain pen - it depends on the designs we come up with when I have a consultation soon. Also, I am getting a smallish tattoo on my outer forearm (possibly on the left side) of a quote I have always loved and believed in.
I am officially getting it done in May, and I will definitely share photos once they're finished. I am beyond excited. This is truly a big deal to me; it's almost liberating, to do something for ME and myself only.
Do you have tattoos? Please tell me all about it/them!
