Life Line

Finally I have a little time to drain my mind and just put everything into writing. The truth is, I’m always tired when I get home and well.. you know the sad story about regular working 8-5 people. It kinda sucks..

Anyway, I got a TATTOO. Finally after years of planning and designing I did it. I just thought it was a time of my life I’d like to remember, even though it does not portray an actual event, I just wanted to get tattooed at this moment.

I call it, Life Line, because these 3 elements more than “metaphorically”, they make my heart beat literally.

Sincerely, myself.

A letter to me, to the 22 year old girl I’ll be at the end of 2013, next new year’s eve.

Dear me,

I hope this year you have accomplished everything you wanted to do. I hope you are in the position you want to be in your life. You graduated, that’s great! You left, off to the adventure of your life, to travel. You actually went to another country, that’s nice. I hope you had fun and enjoyed every part of that adventure.

Oh you got a tattoo!! That’s awesome, did your family screamed at you? I bet your grandma almost killed you. But it was worth it right?

Then you went off to get your masters degree, I knew you wanted to keep on studying. Wow you accomplished so much over the year.

But let me ask you the most important question, are you happy? Of course, everybody have their ups and downs during the whole year but.. overall.. are you content with your life right now? Did you get to do all the things you wanted to do this 2013? and if you did, how did you feel? awesome?, half awesome? some things were disappointing?

Well life is not perfect, right? At least you had a good year. Full of new experiences, new people, new everything. I hope you already have your plans for 2014. In fact, I know you have been thinking about them all year long.

A piece of advice, from friend to friend?. Life is about the experiences, the new things, the challenges; not only about whether you are happy or not, because like I said before, nothing’s perfect. If you had lived then that’s more than enough to say that you have learnt something, other than just placing a checkmark on some stuffs. LIVE. That’s the important.

Keep on the good work honey, you are doing great. Don’t let anyone tell you the opposite. Always do you, no matter what.

Sincerely, myself.

R.

Tattoos to go!

I love tattoos. When a person has one, especially a beautiful one, I can stare them for ages. Or if it is a really ugly one then I would just stare and ask in my mind; why the fuck did you get that permanently in your body?????!!

Either way, tattoos fascinate me. If a guy has a tattoo, it just makes him a 1000 times more attractive for me.

In case you are wondering, YES, I would love to have a tattoo but I’m looking for a really original design (I think I have it, finally).. so now all I need to do is collect money and get my ass kicked by my mom and dad 😀

Here are some of the most amazing travel tattoos I’ve seen on the internet

BTW if any of you have one, share it!!. A great tattoo is a piece of art that the world should see.

Only an open heart allows you to float freely across the universe

The world is divided into two kinds of people:  those who have tattoos, and those who are afraid of people with tattoos.

One of my favourites

She flies with her own wings

My body is a journal in a way.  It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist. 

~Johnny Depp~

When the designs are chosen with care, tattoos have a power and magic all their own.  They decorate the body but they also enhance the soul. 

~Michelle Delio~

Not one great country can be named, from the polar regions in the north to New Zealand in the south, in which the aborigines do not tattoo themselves. 

~Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man~

Your body is a temple, but how long can you live in the same house before you redecorate?

Beauty is skin deep.  A tattoo goes all the way to the bone. 

~Vince Hemingson~

This last two are my personal favourite. I’ll try to incorporate them both in a single tattoo

You may lose your most valuable property through misfortune in various ways.  You may lose your house, your wife and other treasures.  But of your moko, you cannot be deprived except by death.  It will be your ornament and companion until your last day.  ~Netana Whakaari of Waimana~
