beautiful quote, beautiful placement
The past few years have been extremely tough for my parents and I. My parents split, we went bankrupt, we started losing everything. But through all of this we have remained strong and I’ve grown to love and respect both of my parents more than I even knew was possible. I just turn 18 and graduated from high school so naturally, I’m moving on to bigger and better things when it comes to my life but I wanted to get something that would show them how much I love them and how no matter what, they will always be with me no matter what I do. I decided on the poem by E.E. Cummings because for one; he’s my favorite poet, and for two; it applies to this exact situation that I’m in. It says: “I carry your heart with me/I carry it in my heart/I am never without it”
E. E. Cummings

My last name is Oliveira, wich means “olive tree”. So, I decided to make this to show how important my family is to me. The hearts represent my grandfather and grandmother, and I choose to do it on my Achilles tendon, because, as I always say, my family is my weakness. My tattooer is Marco Teixeira from Curitiba/Brazil.
