This is a follow up post from 5 Random Facts About Me That No One Asks For. Some of you asked me about my tattoos, here it is. 😄 I don’t have the greatest tattoos but it really means a lot to me.
I have a total of 5 small tattoos now. I became fascinated with tattoos because of my sister, and from the bands that I listened to back then. I thought they were really cool to look at, and I was just really curious what it was like to have it.
1. Puzzle piece with branches and birds
This was my first tattoo, I got it when I was 17. I’m not really that proud of it, most of my tattoos were just based on impulse. I was torn between having a puzzle piece, trees, or birds and I stumbled upon this design that got it all.
The story behind this is very dramatic 😅 I was 17, I got all that teen angst lol. Anyways, people assume that having this tattoo is me finding a missing puzzle piece in my life but no. The single puzzle piece is me, being alone trying to fit in and wanting to belong. The branches represents the growth in me and the birds are just for freedom. I don’t really want to expound on that, I find it too cheesy 😆.
I’ve written about it years ago, you can read it more here: THINGS I’M TIRED OF HEARING BECAUSE OF MY TATTOO
2. Truce with wings
This is a Twenty One Pilots’ song that really means a lot to me, I love Twenty One Pilots, this band means a lot to me. There was this line in the song where most people get as a tattoo “The sun will rise and we will try again”. I was not really open about my mental health back then, like I said in my story, I bottled up my emotions. And that line from the song gives that away. So, I got the song title instead which is very cryptic just the way I like it. I remember Tyler Joseph, explaining this title which was like, he’s been battling with himself and now he’s saying truce to himself (or something like that), and that really got to me.
When I got this tattoo, everybody was asking me what it meant. And I’ve always been saying “it’s a song from Twenty One Pilots, just listen to it”. The meaning of the song is the meaning of the tattoo itself. 😊
I wrote a little piece about it here: TRUCE
This tattoo represents my faith. I want to talk more about my faith but I’m still trying to form words where I can explain my beliefs further. It’s kind of a messy story, and I will save it in a more elaborate post.
This tattoo doesn’t really mean anything, I just really wanted it lol. But then my boyfriend got one for himself and now it looks like we got matching tattoos 🙄, and it suddenly meant something.
5. Lotus flower
I really like the term rooted from mud, and lotus is that flower. It grows from the dirtiest waters but it blooms. It’s cheesy but I feel like a lotus most times, I feel like I’m always in the mud of sadness and dirty water of darkness but I still grow.
Those are my tattoos, they are not the best ones but it really means a lot. Sometimes when you get a tattoo, it’s not really the outcome that you crave for, it’s the experience and feeling of getting it. 😊 If you’ve been wanting to get a tattoo, don’t be afraid. Don’t be afraid of what the society might say, we’re progressing anyway. A lot more people are very fond of people having tattoos nowadays and if they aren’t, screw them. 😆
