Hi there! What's up? As you have probably guessed by now, I got a new tattoo while in Barcelona. Ahaha mom was SHOOK haha. So, what's the story behind my third tattoo?
I hadn't planned on taking a new tattoo there. It was just that we were walking on the cool and hip are around Carrer dels Angels and we bumped into this tattoo shop called Two Anchors Tattoo. Amongst bigger tattoos they also did flash tattoos with walk-in without an appointment, and I know I never would have gotten myself to book an appointment (lazy life i know). So I just thought "what a cool place" walked in, talked about my idea of this text I had been thinking of with my tattoo artist Ivan (@zemsoner on Instagram) and soon we agreed that I'd be back on our last day. And that's what happened.
I was a bit nervous (but mostly excited) going there on Monday. My previous tattoos are both made with stick n' poke -method so I had never experienced the machine before. And the placing on the wrist was what I was most scared about, because I have very sensitive wrists and I was prepared for it to feel very disgusting even. And I gotta admit, it was a bit more painful than my previous ones, because of the veins on the other side and the bone on the other, but the tattooing itself took about 10mins and we had fun chatting with Ivan so it was all cool.
So as you can see on the picture above, I got the word CREATE tattooed on my left wrist. I knew I wanted that text, because it's so important for me to stay creative. Creativity is like my never-ending source of energy, whether it came to fashion styling, music, photography or how I decorate my home. It's in everything I do, and if I don't constantly create something new, I feel like it's driving me nuts. So, a big deal for me: to keep creating. And for the font, on the other hand, I got help from our airbnb roommates the night before haha. Ended up with a western-style font but it also looks kinda funky I think.
So, to sum it up: I love my new tattoo. Have u got some tattoos taken on a trip or with a cool story? Comment if you do, I'd looove to hear yours <3
