I got my first tattoo yesterday! It definitely hurt, but not as much as I expected.
The quote and sword are both from Pacific Rim, my favourite movie. I wanted to get something to always remember a decision I made four years ago that I would keep moving forward. I also wanted something to honor all of the support I receive every day from my friends and family, because Pacific Rim is a story about giant robots fighting giant monsters, but it is also about having to build connections and relationships with other people in order to overcome your problems, and I wouldn’t have made it without the people in my life.
Also, I just wanted something that would look awesome, and I’m incredibly pleased with how this turned out.
Design was commissioned from wheninromero who did a kickass job. Inked by Matt at Virtue Tattoo which was a great first experience. Sorry for such a long post but I’m really excited about this!
