I decided to get the word hope as it kind of sums up the way I live my life. 'A feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen.' For some reason I'm one of those people that thinks if I want something enough it'll happen but lately I'm starting to realise I have to take steps to make it happen and that hope alone isn't enough. When I look down at this tattoo it reminds me to do; to take action to make my hopes and dreams a reality.
It's funny, I actually had an image of "HOPE" in the font I wanted and everything on my phone just in case I ever decided to get a tattoo of it so it's just ironic that it happened in my favourite place in the world.
The tattoo is in that gross scab-like phase at the moment and I'm starting to see the places where I might need to get it touched up - like the horizontal lines on the H and E don't fully connect to the left line but I'll have to see how it looks when it's fully healed.
A great thing about this tattoo in comparison to my other one is that it's more noticeable and people don't ask what it means because it's quite obvious! With my triangle tattoo everyone still asks what it means and it drives me a little nuts!
