Normally, I write about wrestling or video games, but for this week I thought I would change it up and write about my tattoos since I have been getting asked a lot about them and the meanings behind them. I honestly love getting tattoos and despite what people say, they do not hurt at all just to let you know. I have seven tattoos in total and I’ll do a run through of my tattoos in order from first to last.
My first tattoo I got was when I turned eighteen and it is the band logo for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I wanted this to be my first tattoo since I was inspired from the band and their bass player Flea. I was out of high school and I wanted this tattoo, it meant everything to me, and when I finally got it I was happy and at the same time I was not. My artist did an okay job but during the healing process I noticed he blew out the lines of the tattoo itself and the color faded away quickly. To this day it still means a lot to me, I would just like to get the color redone.
The second tattoo I got was my Luigi tattoo from Super Mario Bros. Now he’s an 8-bit Luigi, which is the original Luigi from the second Mario Bros game. The back story for this one is that my family looks at my sister as the number one child and me as the second. I got it to represent just how Luigi feels about being second.
The third tattoo I got is my biggest and my favorite, my koi fish. I sat in for seven and a half hours for this tattoo and by far this is my favorite one. I got this for my 20th birthday and to me, my koi means everything that I represent in life.
The fourth tattoo is the heart with three swords. This one is for my family, the swords represent my mother, sister, and myself since its always just been us three. It means that no matter what, they’ll always be in my heart.
The fifth tattoo is my TETRIS tattoo I just recently got it and it is a very interesting piece. I got it out of nowhere and the reasoning is that you have events in life that won’t fit in perfectly. Honestly it isn’t my favorite, it’s an okay tattoo.
The last two tattoos I got were birds and I honestly just wanted birds. I have a blue and a purple bird and they represent that time flies.
I do want more tattoos and it’s only a matter of time before I get another tattoo making it my eighth one and it’ll probably be a brother and sister tattoo representing the bond between us.
