Half way through this challenge already!
So to start off, I have one tattoo on my thigh. It’s of a sugar skull and owl incorporated into each other, with two roses behind it. It was originally a tattoo that I had always wanted because owls are one of my favourite animals and sugar skulls have always fascinated me.
On my 18th birthday, my brother told me that his present to me would be paying for my first tattoo. So naturally, I wanted to make sure the tattoo had meaning to me.
The owl represents my brother, the one who has protected me and cared for me since I was born. And the sugar skull represents myself, the one being protected. The two roses were just a pretty decoration added behind.
A lot of people ask me if I regret my tattoo because I had it done about two or so months after my 18th birthday, so they think it was a rushed decision but I will never regret it. It has meaning to me, therefore it is now an important part of me that I will cherish forever.
See you on day 6!
