Here’s a better-quality picture of my new thigh piece! It’s in the healing process right now. Right now I’m sticking with just line-work because I love the way it looks.
Anyways, the tattoo is of a picture I drew one day after listening to All Time Low’s song, “Time Bomb.” I had heard the song hundreds of times before but all of a sudden, these lyrics really spoke out to me.
For the last month and a half or so, I had slowly become more and more depressed. At one point suicide was a thing I considered on a daily basis. Honestly, I don’t think I could ever go through with it but there was just a lot on my plate and I was in the wrong mind-set. The only thing that really, truly made me happy was ATL. Listening to Full Frontal was a daily ritual to keep myself from crying all day. I also watched a hell of a lot of their buzznet videos and interviews.
I decided that getting this tattooed on my body would be there to always remind me that “every storm that comes, also comes to an end” / this too shall pass / kinda thing. I need that constant reminder that when bad things happen, it will eventually pass and I’ll be fine.
Also, having my own artwork on my body meant a lot to me. Although a ship is not “original” I could care less because it is my fucking ship. It represents me continuing to go strong. I will NEVER regret this tattoo because it holds such a near and dear place in my heart. And I felt like paying tribute to a band I’ve loved for 5+ years. They’ve gone through and helped me with so much shit that’s been thrown my way.
I absolutely love this tattoo and it has made me the happiest I’ve been in a long time. Every time I look at it, I can’t help but smile. I hope you guys enjoy it because I sure do!
