I’ve always been meaning to do this..
But never thought how to word it out correctly.
Tattoos are awesome! but they’re more awesome when they have a meaning… And I basically covered my arms in tattoos which actually have a meaning; so let me explain my tattoos
My left sleeve
Hand - I’ve got a geisha head on my left hand with an umbrella, Geishas were peaceful and patient women also exotic. I got this tattoo as a Geisha lead a secret life; untold stories. I don’t really like to talk about my feelings nor what is happening in my head as what’s going on in my head is secretive and mysterious like a Geisha..
Arm - inside: I’ve got “ku no shaba ya sakura ga sakeba saita tote” written as “" it was wrote by a professional calligrapher in haiku which translates as “In a world of grief and pain, flowers bloom, even then” which basically sums up a lot of my life of being depressed and badly bullied in school..
Around my arm I’ve got autumn leaves and flowers falling a part.
Autumn is my favourite season and I wanted a sleeve expressing my favourite scene of all the gorgeous and beautiful colours! I feel more happier in Autumn than any other season.
Finger - I’ve got a diamond with “13” written under.. The diamond symbolises how a diamond is hard and it basically grew up in the dark.
The 13 symbolises the date i got it done.. as it was cheaper getting it done on Friday the 13th for £13($21) .. I really like it makes it more stand out and more mysterious ;)
My right sleeve was done by a scratcher! which i really do regret but I’ve found an artist whose going to fix it up!
my right hand was done professionally and It’s one of my most personal tattoos which I don’t feel really comfortable talking about. So not going to tell you the meaning of my left hand.
well my right sleeve basically symbolises the up and downs of my life. the good and the bad luck.
It’ll look really better when Sarah (my artist who done my left arm) fixes it up and makes it look professional rather than by a scratcher!
Learn something here kids..get your ink done by professionals!!!
Behind my right ear on the top of the neck I’ve got Marilyn Monroe’s signature
I’ve got Marilyn Monroe’s signature for the main fact is; She was perfect and even thought she went through suicide attempts depression and basically dark though..she survived long enough to make a good career. so is an inspiration…(also I’m rather obsessed with her)
In my ear I’ve got a skull; I ask the artist to do what he want and he done a skull in my ear which really fits well as I am deaf…
Of course and obviously this isn’t the end of my tattoo journey I’ve got way more to come and actually got designs being designed!
I’ll write a post like this next year explaining my tattoos! see you 11/3/2015!
Most my tattoos are Japanese as Japan is a beautiful culture and has gorgeous art!
