I told you guys I was going to do it, and I did.




It's my graduation/Christmas present to myself.
My emotions are all over the place; I can't stop crying.
This means so much to me.

I suppose I'll write up a better explanation and story behind this later. I just feel like I'm floating right now.

Update:
 
Dear Poetry isn't just my username, it means too much to me to be only that. Poetry has honestly saved my life. Sometimes people ask me where I would be if I wasn't writing, and I tell them dead. There has been so much wrong in my life, and always kept it so hidden before someone told me to write it all down. 

And last night, everything just seemed to click together. It was spur of the moment, and I walked into this tattoo parlor only seeking a price quote. The owner asked me how much I had on me, and personally did my tattoo for 25 dollars. I wanted to cry right then and there because he was being so nice to me. I think he could tell how much this simple tattoo meant to me. And I just nfrjnrjfnrvnrvnrjvnv.

I would never get a tattoo, ( I can't bear pain at all.)

But this, this is what i like to see.

You are using this not in sense of "It looks cool" or "Everyone else has one."
Your using it because it's something that is meaning to you.

Your tattoo is simple, and lovely. I love it!

I'm planning on getting a tattoo of an old, thick open leather bound book with a quill about to drop ink on the page for the same reason. writing is a part of me and by doing that (this summer hopefully) I am making a promise to myself. Is it the same for you?

Like all good poetry, I find this needs no explanation at all.  Now your art is on your body as well is in it, that is a good thing all around.

Yeah, I know! I wasn't expecting it because the set price of any tattoo int that shop starts at 50 dollars. It was his holiday gift to me. My friend got a great price on her tattoo as well! C:
