I love decorating my body in subtle, personal ways – how else would I have ammased 12 ear piercings, right? – and knew I wanted to get tattoos ever since I was a young teenager. I could never really commit to one specific design though, but the thought of it was always in the back of my mind. (Remember point 7 on my 2014 bucket list?).
As you’ll probably agree, most things happen when you aren’t looking for them. So when I received a postcard with little clouds, stars and a moon on it, and was touched by the almost childlike style, I knew I wanted to get something in that direction.
A little while later, I decided on a tiny sun and a tiny moon. Simple, unfussy and reduced to the basic outlines. I also knew that I’d want to get them on my ankles or on my wrists, so I could hold them together and create perfect harmony between energy and calmness. I know, I’m a little nuts, but I love things like that!
In short, I’ve always been a daydreamer and a night thinker. These two little tattoos remind me to find balance between light and dark. (And they’re just incredibly cute. Ha!).
PS. This is a quick iPhone photo shortly after getting it, so everything should calm down a little.
PS. PS. It really didn’t hurt much, it was mostly uncomfortable. Most of my piercings were way worse.
PS. PS. PS. Speaking of balance, I am afraid I’ll have to go back for something new soon… This tattoo stuff is totally addictive!
Are you thinking of getting something done, or are tattoos a little too permanent for your liking? Let’s talk more in the comments. I’d love to hear what you want to get!
