It's on the top of my right shoulder. I absolutely love it. It means a lot of different things to me, the obvious being in reference to being a photographer. But it's more than that.
For quite a while I've been wanting a friend for the focus tattoo and a word has stood out in my mind for a long time. Strength. Everyone knows what it's like to need to be reminded to be strong. As my pain has gotten worse, I need more and more of a reminder. Not only does it serve as a reminder, it's also a statement. A declaration.
Welcome to my body, new tattoo! Just freshly done (obviously since it's still pink and puffy), and I already love it.
I love when people say, "You know that you're going to have that forever..." Yes. Yes, I do. And I will forever need a reminder to be strong, and a celebration of how strong I have been.
