pierce-the-veil-tattoo

it’s been six months now since I got my tony perry tattoo and not one day have I regretted it. everyone is like ‘oh what’s gonna happen when you don’t like that band anymore?’ ok. let me explain one thing. when someone inspires you to better yourself they are officially a part of your life forever. I don’t know if tony likes it, but he’s a part of my life now. I’ll get to look at this mans signature everyday (until I die) and it keeps me going. it keeps me knowing that when I have no one else, this man and that band are there for me. not literally of course but through music. it’s amazing how much just some songs can do for you, how bands bring people together and make them feel less alone. I know there are some people out there who I wouldn’t have met if it weren’t for shows and bands. so no. the day will never come where I 'don’t like that band’ because unlike normal people who come and go, they’ll always be constant for me. there’s been like months where I don’t listen to ptv at all, but I always come back to them. nothing will ever change about the way that I feel about them. as for the lyrics I had tony write out to go with the signature, I didn’t just pick a line that sounded nice. it’s real. he is the only thing that’s keeping me alive. some days it’s only videos I’ve taken of him at shows that puts a smile on my face. so I say no again. I will NEVER regret this tattoo. it’s the most meaningful thing I have on my body so far and I’m convinced that even as i cover myself in ink, nothing will ever mean as much to me as this tattoo. I’m still in shock that I even got to show it to him. or that he was so in shock & he took a picture of it. I can only hope that seeing my tattoo means ¼ of what it means to me. because just knowing that it means a lot to him is more than I could have ever hoped for.
