Day 14 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge: What tattoos do you have and why?
The first tattoo I got was A Skylit Drive song lyrics, it says, “Close your eyes, just dream.” I chose this for my first tattoo because I am a huge dreamer, always have been and always will be! I wanted sometime to express the way I feel about chasing your dreams.
My second tattoo that I have is actually on the inside of my lip and it says, “Drug Free.” While I haven’t always been drug free, the tattoo means a lot to me because it serves as a reminder to stay drug free from here on out.
The third tattoo that I got is the initials, “EJW” on my left wrist. These are the initials of my Uncle Eric who passed away from brain cancer a few years back. I wanted to get something in his memory.
My fourth tattoo is another song lyric, but this one is from a For Today song. It says, “My God is greater than this world.” I went to one of their shows in downtown Raleigh a few years back and that verse of one of their songs just stood out to me so much and I felt compelled to get a tattoo dedicated to it.
The most recent (and favorite) tattoo that I have gotten is on my thigh, it is my only colored piece. It is a bonsai tree with the words, “Stay Strong” across it. I got this tattoo a few days after my husband left me and a few days after my first attempt to overdose. I needed a reminder to myself that I should stay strong no matter what life throws at me.
What tattoos do you have? Is there any meaning behind them? I’m very eager to hear about everyone else’s ink! 🙂
