About 3/4 weeks ago I had gotten my second tattoo, which is something that not only represents me as a person but also is something I believe in fairly strongly.
Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum … If You Seek Peace Prepare for War
They say that once you get one tattoo, you either get addicted or you get discouraged. Well after getting my first one:
I am definitely addicted.
Today I went to see my friend Chris, who’s family own’s Tora Tattoo’s in Waterloo On, and I got my next set of tat’s done:
Its funny, I posted a status update on Facebook saying, “Partying in Waterloo this weekend, maybe get another tattoo?” and two days later, my friend Chris texted me telling me he has openings the same day I was going to be in town. He booked the appointment, I sent him my designs and now I am the proud owner of 4 tattoo’s.
One thing that I dislike though about tattoo’s is when people get things that are meaningless. Tattoo’s are forever, so why put something on your body that does not mean anything to you. For example, tribal tattoo’s. There is no meaning to them, and now it seems everyone has one. I know that they look cool, but there really isn’t a personal meaning to them, is there? Anyway, it is what it is. My tattoo’s all have meaning to them. Take the one on my back. For many its hard to read but it is my last name. The dates are the birth dates of my two boys. The one on my arm is something I live by and strongly believe in. And the two on my wrists, well one is my birth date, and the other is Anubis, God of the Dead. The meaning behind this one is really personal, so I wont be sharing it publicly.
I have a few more tattoo’s I’d like to get, and those ones have a purpose and meaning as well. I won’t spoil them right now, but I know that at least one of them, my mom will definitely like.
For now, I think I am done for the year. Oh … which reminds me … all my tattoo’s have been placed on my body within the year. The one on my back I did the day of my birthday, my arm, 4 weeks ago, and of course the two on my wrists today. I think I need to stop before I get out of hand.
So for now … I think I am done … I think …
