A Wednesday Wishlist : Tattoo Edition

I'm starting to get more and more interested in tattoos and piercings and what not. Maybe it's the middle school punk in me. (I was such a poser in middle school, hahaha. If I was a few years younger, I totally would have been one of those scene girls.) I used to have my ears pierced back in seventh grade, but they've long since closed up. I like the look of gauges, but I'm too much of a baby to do it. I do want some tattoos. And I know they're going to hurt, but I really want to suck it up because I know that I will enjoy them. Here are a few of my ideas:

1. What: Two Fleur-de-lis's
    Where: inside of my heels, just below the ankle, one on each side
    Meaning: A reminder of my time at camp and all the wonderful people I've met there that have made an impact on my life and how it has changed me. Since I've started working there, I have become more outgoing and more confident and I'm hoping that this summer that these traits will continue to grow for me.

2.  What: Flying birds, with lyrics "take these broken wings and learn to fly"
     Where: Shoulder
     Meaning: Alright, so this isn't the most creative tattoo, as I've heard of other people (no one I know) having it. But I've wanted something like this for a while, as I reminder to not let everything get me down.

By Corinne Alexandra
3. What: A beautiful work of art by an artist I like
    Where: Upper arm
    Meaning: There really isn't much of one, except my love of art. I stumbled upon this illustration by Corinne Alexandra and I'm in love! I wanted to find some sort of illustration of a girl with antlers and this one definitely caught my eye.

4. What: Wisconsin outline, with a heart in the Northwest
    Where: I have no idea, haha
    Meaning: Just a reminder of where I'm from and where my heart belongs.

Well, there you go. Let's see if I actually get any of these, or if I chicken out majorly, haha. I'm hoping to get those Fleur-de-lis's this summer. We'll just have to wait and see!
