Lifestyle | My Tattoo.


If any of you follow me on my various social platforms you may know that I recently got my first tattoo! And today's quick post is a little bit about it, and why it's special to me.

I had been talking about getting a tattoo for years!.. Okay 1 year, but still it was a long time. And I know all my family thought I was just saying it for attention or to be different and that I'd never actually get one. But I did. I bit the bullet and popped into my local tattoo artists' Anchor and Rose to book an appointment. If you're Northern Ireland based and looking for a tattoo check them out, their work is amazing! The design I wanted was a humpback whale that my amazingly talented friend Stephanie drew for me. I got this because it's my favourite kind of whale and the kind I aspire to help and work with in the future. It represents my whole university experience (I studied Zoology) as well as reminding me of my dream job every day. It means a lot to me and I'm so glad I got it, I still can't believe it's really there! I got it put on the inside of my left ankle as I wanted it to be subtle and easily covered if need be. And although everyone told me it would be 'really painful' it wasn't. A bit sore but not the horror story I was expecting!

I'm in love with it and I'm already planning another - now the problem is deciding what to get! Would you ever get a tattoo? Or have you already got one? I'd love to see any pictures you have that would give me inspiration! xo
