I Got a Tattoo!

After years of planning out all the teeny tiny tattoos I want, I finally took the plunge at the end of May and got one. For now I'd just like to share it, but please let me know if any of you are interested in a post about the full experience - talking pain, aftercare and how to go about booking your first tattoo.

So, to the tattoo. I'm so pleased with my little lotus flower. The legend around the lotus is that it rises to the top of the lake through muddy water, and so can be translated to pushing yourself through the bad situations to get to the good. It's also a symbol of calmness, making it a way of reminding myself to relax when the anxiety and stress is getting to me which is why I chose to get it placed facing me rather than outwards.  And what's more, it's pretty too. Because it sits on the inside of my right arm, it catches my eye all the time and I'm wondering if I'll every get used to it being there. For now, I'm smitten and can't wait to get another (few) sometime in the future!

P.S. In the photo it's still healing so isn't quite perfect yet!
