I got inked yesterday! I have wanted this tattoo for such a long time, and it is so meaningful for my life right now. I will be posting a video about it, but I will explain here too I suppose.
It is from Modest Mouse, the song "Float On" which is such an amazing song. I have loved this song since 8th grade, and I always listen to it when I'm down or sad because the lyrics. "Well we'll all float on good news is on the way." and also, "Even if things end up a bit too heavy we'll all float on."
These words remind me that all will be okay one day. It is also facing me so that I can read it whenever I need to be reminded.
The typefont is significant as well. I am a writer and wanted a tattoo also to symbolize that. I was originally going to go with a pretty cursive font, but that just simply wasn't right for me. I needed something else significant mixed in, so typefont was perfect.
It hurt. Like a B. The artist actually had to do the outline first and then shade it, I was not expecting this. As he finished the outline, I began to get light headed so he stopped and stepped out of the room for a moment. I peek over at the progress and it's just empty box letters. I realized how much was left, and the next thing I know I'm on the floor in my best friends arms asking if I fell asleep. Yes, I passed out. There were parts that didn't hurt, and others that vibrated pain all the way to my fingers (the "t" was the worst pain.) It was an embarrassing experience for sure, but the artist didn't make me feel bad for passing out, he brought me chips and water, and was completely understanding. I obviously was able to finish just fine and just blared some music and talked with my bestie. I have no regrets about placement, font, or saying. It was the most perfect tattoo I could get for this stage of my life. <3
