OK, so here it is. My Attack on Titan tattoo at the upper center of my back.
In February 2015 I discovered Attack on Titan after a very hard time in my life. I was close to death more than once and this wonderful universe gave me so much power, energie and above all: inspiration and passion. I’ve always been a passionate person but certain circumstances in my life took this away from me.
I fell in love with the story as whole and with certain characters. Above all: Erwin & Levi. I admired Erwin’s determination and Levi’s history gave me hope. Those two inspired me so much and still inspire me every single day of my life. I can’t imagine a day without thinking about them, writing about them, reading about them, enjoying the wonderful fanart and being a part of this awesome fandom.
February 2016 - one year after I discovered Attack on Titan and one year after I survived by more than luck - I was more in love than ever with the universe and these two characters in particular and the idea of a tattoo started to grow in my head.
I already have three tattoos and all of them are very meaningful to me. A band tattoo (Manowar), a J.R.R. Tolkien tattoo (both on my shoulders) and a Game of Thrones tattoo (on my wrists). So I thought Attack on Titan would fit right in there among all the wonderful things that somehow had and still have an influence on my life.
After a certain chapter, which I will not name here, I was devastated and deeply shocked but also inspired to get the Attack on Titan tatoo done while honouring Erwin. This man gave and is giving me so much, it’s hard to describe, but above all he tought me again to “Offer up my heart”.
This quote stands for everything I do in my life; either I do something with all I have to give or I don’t get started.
So now, March 2017, two years after I fell in love, it is done. And I’m so happy and proud. It took 3 hours and at the end it got really painful, but it was worth it.
TL;DR: I really like Attack on Titan (regardless of the development of the manga) because it gave me back my will to live. I love and admire Erwin so I wanted to honour him. [The background below the Wings of Freedom will get lighter after it’s healed]
Ok but if this tattoo is truly from yesterday be it fake for the show or real and Jensen is finally got a tattoo after saying he wouldn’t whilst acting due to make up issues etc ….
It has to be in the show right? If it’s fake for the show then obviously but if it’s real it’s still too good an opportunity to miss. It’s got wings, that most people even outside of this would see as Angel wings as that’s the main tattoo reason for wings. They’re usually in memory of someone passed on or to do with love and hearts, a common tattoo is a heart with wings (like Buffy yes). It’s even on his hand print arm.
*Insert SERIOUSLY?! gif*
So in 13x02 we know Jack (and maybe Sam) gets tattoos, they’re in a tattoo parlour. Maybe we will get a moment where Dean hangs back in the tattoo shop or we see him casually perusing the examples on the wall and we see this design… because you know, not that there were a ton of angel wing tattoo designs around…
If so WHY. Why post this to social media the day before the episode where they go get tattoos. Why freaking WINGS. Whether it’s real or fake either way it’s still so relevant.
Maybe we will see it in the show (Chuck I hope so) if it’s for the show then obviously but if it’s Jensen’s own tattoo (wings? seriously?! and this seems real) it’s likely to come up, it’s too good an opportunity to miss with it even being his handprint arm.
If this happens, because it only just happened yesterday (apparently) so won’t be in 02 but only later, then this is Dabb & crew yet again telling us about things that happen in flashbacks (if we do see it again and Chuck help me I can think of a very good reason we might see Dean shirtless a while after Cas is back) or just a “it happened off screen” retcon which Dabb era loves to use, reminding us that we don’t see everything, for reasons that will be clear - that the audience sometimes have to do some adding up of past canon and bits that we may have missed to make sense of what happens in the end if they were watching so casually they didn’t notice.
Texting emoticons, gifting the mixtape, the sacred oath repercussions, shopping at hot topic… there are so many things that happened off camera and are only later referenced that are so important to certain narratives.

so lately i wasn’t feeling very attached to rowangoat… so i decided to redesign them. i feel like i can really express my individuality through them now their heart pendant acts like a moodring! their hair can be any color ^ o^ they really like rainbows and anime!!! they’re kawaii ^____^ i also decided to turn them into a species!!! :3 they’re called “sparklegoats”!!!!! (like “sparkledogs”!!!) customs start at $450 if you’re interested ^ o^ they’re goats with floating wings and rainbow designs on them!!!! the bigger the wings the rarer! they can have tattoos, halos, heart designs, but no dark colors!! i’m really happy with this new rowangoat, they’re a lot more unique now!!!!
