Tattooed

Black, white, gray, and hints of bright colors for fun, for… color!
Swirls & patterns & a sprinkle of stars, some as small as an * — feminine and strong
But even then it stays a bit dark, mysterious, and a little brooding

Shadows & light. Dark & bright. Both extremes, together to create an almost balanced mix of both. Almost, because the shadows are just slightly stronger than the colors and lights.

Clear, solid outlines don’t hold in the hazy, wonderfully messy strokes.

They mean:

The unknown. It is confusing and self contradicting. But it’s a beautiful, peaceful, hopeful unknown somehow.

dreams

peace

LOVE

ideals… ideas

BEAUTY

and music.

Dreams that come true, and even more that don’t. I dream some more, regardless.

Music that makes me dream. Music that lets me dream, that takes me to my own little world. Solitude, much needed solitude. — An escape. Temporary freedom, utopic, from the often disappointing, sometimes depressing world we live in.

Love. Love that hurts. Love that loves. Love in all its beauty and pain. Pain in beauty, beauty in pain. Beauty that is more than what just the eye can see. Beauty that I felt. Beauty I fell in love with.

Ideas, ideals. More than what I have, more than what I can have. More than what I am, sometimes… I try. And I HOPE — I can’t help it. I still want to believe, and believe, I do. All this, and

Peace, love, and all the good stuff hippies rallied for.

Life. ♥

And NO, I DON’T HAVE A TATTOO. …Yet. ;)

I don’t have a set date. But friends know that I’ve been wanting one (or more!) since who knows when.

What’s taking me so long is that I don’t have a design. All I have is a concept, a thought, an abstract feeling of what it should and could be.

I am incapable of drawing (and I’m not just being humble here), so I write my prospective “design” down instead. A kind of verbal illustration for the tattoo I want. Do different kinds of art transcend the medium that it’s placed on? Will it translate well? I hope so.

I must find an actual tattoo artist to talk to. (Hullo. Are you there?)

I want a tattoo. Sometimes, I think I need it. To remind me of all these things, good and bad.

  1. I hope the artist gets your written description perfectly though. And good luck on explaining that abstract idea.

    Drawing isn’t my greatest talent as well, so I ask friends to draw for me… and it’s hard to achieve the feeling I want in that artwork.
    Where do you plan to put your 1st tattoo pala? :)

  5. @Anna O: The rest is a secret na. I pour my heart out on this blog, but I’ll keep the tattoo to myself. The location? I’ll work it out on my own. I don’t want to end up asking for opinions kasi. ;p

    @Ade: I might or might not post a pic of it. :) This is seriously personal shit for me, for some strange reason.

    @Britney: Well thank you! :D

    @Lioness: I’m not even gonna try to draw it! Hahahahaha. You’re on your own on that one, sorry. Haha.

  6. I’ve wanted a tatoo for the longest time as well and I plan to have it placed on my foot (i think it will hurt).
    Good luck on your tatoo. It seems crazy/wonderful! Why don’t you look for African tribal patterns then have fun with it? :D
