Between this and the birds tattoo, this one is a must. Someday. Not sure if it'd be the wrist or not, I want something I can conceal. When I had a m/c before my second daughter, my oldest daughter and I sat in the yard and blew on dandelions wishing for a baby. Maybe I'll make a painting instead?
"I got this tattoo because I wanted to tell myself every day that everything will be okay. I got it on my right forearm because I used to self-harm right below my tattoo. I no longer self-harm and things are getting better. And even if things get bad, they can’t stay shitty forever."
To remind me that this is my life, and my story. When I look at this, I remember that I am strong, and that I, not those around me, am responsible for my own happiness. And by that same token, no one can bring me down. I’ve got this; I don’t need to be saved. Thanks to James at Tar Heel Tattoo for this amazing work.
