i've been completely obsessed with tattoos lately. if you've read my previous posts, you'd know i currently have 5. all of mine so far are solid black, simple, and script (in some form or another).

"pure" in chinese - done at yonge street tattoos, toronto
"horse, dragon, monkey, love, forever" in chinese - done at yonge street tattoos, toronto
weezer's "flying w" - done at love/hate tattoos in miami
song lyrics - done at zink tattoos in hong kong
book/movie tribute and symbol of friendship - done at art addictions in brampton

but i have high aspirations. there are many more i want to get. among those are still the lotus idea i mentioned before i've had for years. if dreams come true, i would love for chris garver to do that for me. i don't know how likely it would be for us to go back to miami again. *fingers crossed* if not, whoever the tattoo artist ends up being, he or she has got to be good! the symbolism of it really strikes a chord with me. the idea of growing up through shit to become strong and beautiful. it's a nice idea. something i'd like to achieve. i've held off on getting it because i don't feel i'm "there" yet. and also, i'm really picky. i have a million ideas about how i want it to look. 

i'd also like something to take up my upper arm and shoulder, curling onto my back. i was thinking a phoenix. that is also highly symbolic. i don't deserve it yet. so it's still just an idea.

i do have something with more of a solid plan that i'm ready for. i won't go into detail about it now because i'm sure once i do it, i'll write something about it. i want a few soot sprites from my neighbor totoro behind my ear.

you may or may not realize that i'm in love with cupcakes. i think it would be fun to have a tattoo that is colourful and cute without having much depth to the meaning. not everything has to be so serious.

just an idea
