If I get a tattoo with the Memorians before leaving in April, this will be the one.
I might change my stars on strings tattoo idea so instead of saying “too fondly” it says “adventure.”
Because ten weeks as an Adventure counselor etched the word into my self-perception in a way I never thought was possible.
YES YES YES OKAY filing this away for laterrrrr.
Updated version of the tattoo I’m getting with Madison soon!
Now, where would I put it?
And will I ever feel forgiven enough to get it?
The tattoos I want and where they would go:
- Red, my ancharrow (which I already have)
- Orange, “We accept the love with think we deserve”
- Yellow, “Monsters are real…”
- Light green, the Deathly Hallows symbol
- Dark green, camera aperture
- Light blue, the Nowhere Man
- Dark blue, “too fondly”
- Light purple, the solar system in line
- Dark purple, whatever my Underoath tat ends up looking like
- Pink, my doublestar that I use for my photography logo/to sign my name on everything since I was 12
Because I’ve been thinking a lot about tattoos lately, and I never posted this one:
Jeremy, aka the Nowhere Man, from The Beatles’ movie The Yellow Submarine.
He stands for my childhood, my father, and my desire to be a writer. =)
If/when I get it, it will be on my right shoulder, right above the shoulder blade.
Concepts for Madi & my matching Perks tattoos, tentatively scheduled for December :D
Heavily leaning towards JUST having lyrics from To Whom It May Concern in my Underoath tattoo concept…
I’m thinking a crosshatched road, and just “At the end of the road / you’ll find what you’ve been longing for” with the Ø somewhere in there.
Although the lyrics in Desolate Earth…
Playing around with ideas for an Underoath tattoo, because sudden want. Plus, their music has kept me sane for a long, long time. Longer than Fair to Midland, technically.
Talk about crazy.
A new drawing, “Between Two Lungs” :~)
If I didn’t have boobs, I would get a trees-as-lungs tattoo.
My next tattoo, probably going right under my collar bone on my left side.
Trying to figure out if I should keep five stars (2 + 0 + 1 + 2 = 5)
or try and go with six (‘12 divided by 2 = 6)
Based on a quote by Galileo
Though my soul may set in darkness
it shall rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
to be fearful of the night
“Everything is nothing, with a twist.” - Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughter-house Five
Okay, I got chills when I saw this, because this song (actually, this entire album) just. Yes. Okay. Shit.
I kind of want it now. This quote. On me. Because this song. Odjkfg I cannot words.
Shit, I’m going to end up listening to The Black Parade tonight… o_O
Finally messing with concepts for this tattoo.
People have told me that I shouldn’t get this quote, because it’s so dark/depressing/pessimistic, but the truth is, to me, it’s a reminder that there are some things optimism can’t fix. There are things inside people that were hurt or broken or taken away that no amount of love can fix.
And this is not a bad thing. It just is. And every single person you will ever meet has scars, either physical or emotional or mental, that will be there forever. They can be faint, or only seen in the right light, or the kind that itch when the weather gets bad, but they will always be there.
Sometimes the monsters win, and trying to deny that will only hurt more in the end.
