Last night I was finally able to get the addition I’ve been wanting to add to my tattoo! The original tattoo I have of the wings was one that I had done a little over 3 years ago, it was me putting how I felt into my skin. I went through a lot in a short amount of time, and having brain surgery uprooted everything I had planned for my future. My wings tattoo represents me finding a new way to fly even though I had been grounded for so long.
The wings album means a lot to me because it connects so much to everything I felt after I had surgery. I felt lost, like I could no longer find my way. I felt like I couldn’t fly. I wished that I could love myself. I wanted to be saved. There’s many more things too that they covered in this album that just. Connected.
I learned that I’ll never walk alone. I made so many good friends through this album, and became even closer to friends I already had. I got to meet 2 of them for the first time and travel with them to see BTS during the wings tour. This never would have happened if we hadn’t all connected with this album.
These words and symbols mean so much to me and being able to tie them into another tattoo that means a lot to me is amazing. I’ll always remember BTS and how their words connected with so many people. I’ll remember how their smiles light up people’s days and how they taught so many people to love themselves. All of these feelings and more will now forever a part of me, and I couldn’t be happier.
