Introducing Leo, the new addition to my body, isn’t he beautiful?
I’ve always said that my blog is an online journal, a place where I can share the most personal and even mundane things, and also a safe haven for me to write about whatever the hell I want. And I stand by that. It’s important that I remember why I started blogging, that I document the insignificant things, that I share aspects of my life that may not mean anything to you guys but they do to me and that’s what counts. It helps you guys to get to know me better. It allows me to express myself. I’m a ‘lifestyle’ blogger so it’s important that I actually document the happenings in my life. No matter what they are.
I digress. So yesterday I got a new tattoo, a majestic big lion with piercing blue eyes, on my left thigh. I’ve named him Leo, because it suits him, and it’s my star sign. I got him because I wanted him; because I thought he would bring my thigh to life and add another sprinkle of my personality to my outer appearance. So many people always want to know the meaning behind tattoos – sometimes we just get them because we want to ok?
Leo took 3 hours yesterday to come to life, he still has another 2 hours of fine detail to go, but I’ll let him heal first. The insanely talented Peter at Fleur De Lis in Glasgow did this beauty for me and he done a pretty damn good job. I couldn’t have asked for it to be any better, any different or any more realistic. It’s even more special than I had envisaged. (Cheers Peter)! This was my 10th tattoo (well, I’m currently in the process of undergoing tattoo laser removal for one of them). I’ve already got roses all up my right thigh so having Leo opposite on my left thigh, at level with the flowers, looks pretty neat. I’ve always hated my thighs – well, my legs in general – so having something to distract people (and me) from my skin helps my anxiety. It’s almost like I’m hiding behind a mask. But that’s OK because it’s still me inside, and just because there’s ink on my body, doesn’t change a thing about who I am.
Hey, that’s a whole other post in itself! I just wanted to introduce Leo to y’all because I’m excited and he deserves to be seen! So what do you think? Have you got any tattoos? Let me know in the comments below!
