Hello Sunshine!!! So I decided to do a tattoo diary because 1. all my tattoos mean a lot to me and 2. because I’ve never really went into detail about what the meanings behind them are, so here I am in currently in my bed telling you all about my tattoos. You’re probably wondering while you read this, “Well if she’s going to do a whole blog post about her tattoos then she must have a lot” and you would be correct if this came across you’re mind because at the young age of 18, I have 6 tattoos (& yes I waited until I was 18 to get all of them). In a matter of 9 months I got 6 tattoos and not a single one I regret putting on my body. Okay Okay, I’ll stop with all this mumbo jumbo and get into the good stuff.
This is my most recent tattoo and probably the last one I’ll get for a while but if you ask my boyfriend, he’d tell you I say that every time after I get a new one. OOPS! What can I say? I like tattoos. My mom and I got this tattoo just before I came back to school a few days ago and if you know me then you know why the plane is significant for my mom and I. For those of you who don’t know, thats the point of this whole post so here it goes. I have live a very unique lifestyle because of my mom. I have had the privilege of flying for free my whole life because of my moms job at Southwest Airlines. Because of my mom I have grown a love for traveling and seeing knew things. You may think that the plane is “flying” that direction for no reason at all but I purposefully placed it that way because that is the flight direction from Tempe, Arizona to Sacramento, California. With it flying that direction it reminds me that I am only a flight away from home no matter how homesick I feel or how badly I miss my friends and family. It was actually my moms idea to get the heart with the plane and at first I didn’t know how I felt about the idea but I love my momma and I wanted to get whatever she was getting and it ended up working out because this is one of my favorite tattoos.
So here’s how the story goes, my roommate and I have been bff’s since we were 5 so it was only fitting to go to college together of course and so when our other two best friends decided to come visit we knew we had to give them the ASU experience. So where do you think we went on a Saturday before a football game? A FRAT PARTY. (sorry mom and dad). Pretty much we decided to leave that shin dig and head on over to get tattoos! We all wanted to get a matching one which will come later but that day I also got two other tattoos and these are them. I don’t want to say that this one is one of my favorites because I love all of my tattoos but I’m just going to say it, the “go live” tattoo on my ribs is one of my favorites. This tattoo is pretty self explanatory because honestly it was a tattoo to remind me to go f@#$%^& live my life. I have always been the person who does good in school, never gets in trouble (except that one time in Tahoe but I’ll save that for another time), and is sometimes scared to live a little. As for the one on my finger, if you don’t know what it is, well it’s my zodiac and if you don’t know your zodiac sign and what it means then you should because they’re pretty freaking cool. I know some people don’t believe in zodiac signs but a Pisces if pretty spot on to my personality and I love that so I got it tattooed on my finger(:
These are my next two tattoos and I’m sure you can probably tell by now that I’m a fan of the simple feminine tattoos. As I said earlier, my friends and I got matching tattoos and yes it is the heart. We’ve been best friends for a longgggg time and two of us decided to go away to school and two decided to stay at home. They’ll always be my best friends no matter what happens in our lives (if you’re reading this I love y’all). As for my other ankle tattoo, this was my second tattoo ever and let me tell you, THIS TATTOO HURT SO BAD and this might be shocking when you see my very first tattoo and the size of it but this little dainty wildflower was no joke. If I’m being honest I found this tattoo on Pinterst and fell in love with it. But months after I got the tattoo I looked up the meaning of a wild flower it said, “a flower of an uncultivated variety or a flower growing freely without human intervention” and I thought that was a pretty cool because my parents are divorced and neither of them lived close to my high school and I was always busy with extra curricular activities and I had the opportunity to grow freely and do what I wanted at a young age, but keep in mind I am a goody too shoes and doing what I wanted consisted of hanging out with my friends and going to Dutch Bros but its still a cool concept though, right? Well, I think so.
This was my very first tattoo and definitely my largest tattoo I’ll ever get. Months before I turned 18 I knew I wanted to get a sparrow tattoo. My great grandfather had to sparrow tattoos on his chest and there is a picture of him holding me when I was a baby and he didn’t have a shirt on so the tattoo is easily visible and by far my favorite picture we have together. It ended up being sort of a family tattoo because my uncle ended uo getting the same exact tattoo and on his chest also. My dad got one on his forearm with an anchor because he was in the navy. And when I hit the big one eight I made my appointment and got one myself. My great grandpa passed away 6 days before my 15th birthday and was a super adventurous guy and I hope I get to a point in my life where I can be as adventurous as he was.
Low quality picture for a high quality guy.
