Hi guys! ♡

I have one tattoo currently, which you can on the cover image when you clicked on the article.

It's a small plus sign on the inside of my right ankle and it symbolizes me staying grounded and feeling connected to my small place in the world.

I got it when things suddenly looked brighter in my life after moving to another country to attend university. I had a lot of new really awesome friends and absolutely loved life, which is a rare concept for me, and I got the tattoo to stop myself becoming too arrogant or head-in-the-clouds. In the end, my life hadn't always been this way and there were still millions out there suffering through terrible things.

My life has calmed down a bit from the hectic happiness I felt in September and October, but the tattoo is still a nice reminder of climbing above myself and reaching a happiness I'd never felt before.

(And those who really, really understand me know that Louis Tomlinson from One Direction has the same one, and he and the band played a massive part in finding who I am and making myself better every day. So there's a secret, too. Cheers to idols and fandoms :))

Anyhow. I love tattoos and would love to get a second or third sometime in the future. Here's a list of the ones I love. (None of these photos are mine.)

1. To the Sun.

A huge part of my search for happiness to my search for sunlight. Vitamin D makes me happy. I love this tattoo. It reminds me of when people say "I love you to the moon and back." No - I love you to the sun and back.

2. Mapped out.

Gosh, the map tattoo! Maps inspire me so much and remind me of the fact that there is so much more in life to discover and to explore. I was iffy at first about this tattoo being on the foot, but after looking at it for a minute or two I believe it has something special.

3. The wave.

I always tell people my next tattoo will be a wave. Simple, just a line - yet so meaningful to me. The ocean has been my friend since birth; my best friend since the day I surfed for the first time.

4. Ohana.

Ohana means family. And family means you never get left behind, or forgotten.

5. The watchful eye.

Absolutely love this tattoo. It reminds me of A Series of Unfortunate Events in which the eye highlights an underlying theme of always being watched by society and by the media. This series defined my childhood; we can honestly be best friends if you love it as much as I do. The eye is simple and protective.

Lastly I'd like to point out that tattoos make guys 1000 times cuter.

That is all.

Enjoy the rest of your day guys ♡
