I got another tattoo everyone. This one is for me. It’s for my battle. It’s for every mountain I had to climb and every person I had to walk past, be the bigger person and move on, every person who talked shit and I let it get to me. Fuck you. I am beautiful, kind, smart, funny, talented, and imperfect and that’s perfect because I’m alive and here. I’d usually let what bitches say to me, make me question if I’m important, if I’m worth it. YES I FUCKING AM. I don’t need to cut myself, I don’t need to talk down on me because I don’t fit others standards. I am me and I am strong. So fuck you. I will be okay.
Finally got this done after 2 years of wanting it. Throughout the years and struggles with anxiety and depression, one of the few constants in my life has been music. No matter how low and close to the edge I get, music is one of the only things that can and has pulled me back to reality. It has taught me that the scars on my body don’t matter because I’m still here. This tattoo serves as a constant reminder that if I’ve made it this far, I can keep going. Thank you to Pierce the Veil for always giving me something to hold on to.
This was my first tattoo. It’s from Pierce the Veil’s song “The Cheap Bouquet.” Pierce the Veil has had such a huge impact on my life. When I met them, I just started crying my eyes out and just told Vic how much they meant to me. He saw my scars and just held my hand. He looked at me and said, “You’re stronger than this. You are worth more.” Ever since then, I knew what my first tattoo was going to be. I also know that I want my chest piece to say “There’s faith in love.” and my thigh tattoo to say “Tonight, I’ll make you feel beautiful again.” Thanks Pierce The Veil for being there when I needed you most.
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.
