Today I bit the bullet and got two new wrist tattoos I have been wanting for a while. The pictures aren't great as my wrists are still a little swollen and there is still some excess ink on my arms, but I am really happy with how they turned out and wanted to show you.
Tattoo #1: Just Breathe
I've had a rough few years and wanted to get something that would remind me to slow down and take a deep breath whenever I am feeling overwhelmed or life feels out of control. I am constantly telling myself to relax and 'just breathe' and thought this would be the perfect tattoo.
Tattoo #2: Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine.
I'm not going to lie, these lyrics are actually from a Taylor Swift song. That, however, is not the reason I got the tattoo. I have always been someone who cares what everyone else thinks of me and spend a lot of time and energy trying to make everyone like me. This tattoo is a reminder that not everyone is going to love me and not to worry about those who don't. You can't please everyone.
I realize that tattoos are forever, but I honestly think these will still be meaningful to me at any age.
Do you have any tattoos?
