My tattoo’s

As a kid growing up, I never thought I would get a tattoo. My father used to have a tattoo parlor with his ex-wife, my brother’s mother. I never thought I would have 8 tattoos and planning on more.

I got my first tattoo in Argentina before my 19th Birthday. I always loved the idea of infinite and of loving someone forever.

My second and third tattoo, I got at the same time in New York in April 2013. I got a tattoo dedicated to my acting coach who passed away when I was 15 years old. It has his name, the dates of his life and a quote I found.

The second tattoo I got says love never dies. I got the tattoo because even when relationship end, I still love them as a person and a friend. I always try my best to stay friends with my ex no matter what.

My third and fourth tattoo are both numeral number tattoos. These were done in November of 2013. One of them is for my brother and one of them I did for my boyfriend at the time which now seems like a mistake, but I do not regret it because it reminds me that I was loved and I will find someone who loves me unconditionally.

This tattoo is my brother’s birthday. My older brother is my hero and I love him very much. He took care of me from the age of 12 until I went off to college. He always is there for me.

This tattoo is dedicated to my ex-boyfriend. We were together for almost four years until I went off to follow my dreams in Paris. We would still be together if I did move away.

In spring time of 2015, I got two more tattoos in Jersey City while visiting my father. One of them says fighter and the other is a Jewish Hebrew symbol on the back on my neck which I do not have a photo of.

I have a tattoo that says fighter on my arm because I have gone through so much in my 22 years of life but somehow, I always stand up and pick myself up and continue living and following my dreams. I don’t let anyone stop me.

This means life in Hebrew

I am a fighter because I stand up again.

My 8th tattoo say’s wanderlust with three birds flying. Wanderlust is a strong desire or urge to wander or travel and explore the world. I love travelling. I never feel quite as peace as when I am travelling the world. I plan on getting more tattoos. It is a way for me to express myself.
