So, today was the big day. I got my first ink! I was super freaking scared (and my friend can attest to this) but it ended up being fine. The tattoo artist guy was really nice and so that made the whole process easier. The pain wasn’t too bad although I can’t imagine sitting for a whole sleeve or something like that. Anyway, this is the finished product:
It’s on my right upper arm and says “This above all, to thine own self be true”. For any Shakespeare fans out there, you’ll know it’s a quote from Hamlet.
The reason behind this tattoo is that basically, having Moebius can make us feel like we can’t do what we want in life. Sometimes we feel because of our differences, we won’t get our dream job or we won’t find someone that will love us despite our differences. This is to remind me every day and to remind all of us to stay true to ourselves and go after what we really want in life.
And I may or may not have another tattoo booked for November 8th. Ooops.
Remember, always be true to yourself.
On a completely disconnected note, I met someone that works at the college that I go to who reads my blogs! It’s a small world! So honoured to meet you and thanks for reading 🙂
