I cannot count how many people have taken photographs of my only two tattoos in the past. And now I've realized; a ton of people I know are either waiting for their perfect tattoo, or trying to figure out where to put their "perfect" tattoo. If you want my honest input: DON'T DO IT. Your body is a temple. That's right. YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE. And mine's an amusement park, I had fun. I don't regret it, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it.
Now, I've had a hefty amount of people asking me what my tattoos mean, and I'm going to be dead honest. I use to always tell people that it's "chaos and perfection" (just to have an simple explanation), but I have to be honest. They really don't mean much to me any longer. I know, I know; they're permanent but hey, they've become a part of me (like my ears, brows, nose, etc.). So I'm only going to be honest once. The circle; I got this because a few of my friends were getting it as well (friendship situation, not an original thought). We all got it in different parts of our body, but I was too frightened so I had it done on my wrist. Everyone has it filled in, I didn't because getting it removed would be a bitch.
Now, as for the scribble...I wanted something to balance the circle. I couldn't think of anything so I kept scribbling out everything I drew, which led me to this.
Disappointing to hear this truth, I know.
And when it comes to everyone I know who has a tattoo with a significant meaning (for example, "this tattoo represents my love for my mom/dad/dead grandfather); here's what I have to say...
You don't need ink to remember a feeling. That person is worth so much more than a tattoo. That thought/feeling/emotion/love is worth so much more than permanent ink.
You can do better.
And if you must, do it for yourself.
