My fourth and fifth tattoos were done in close succession. Ironically, these were done 10 years later at the same tattoo parlour in America as my very first tattoo. I returned to America to visit those amazing people who had supported me in my darkest days and continue to support me. These tattoos were planned, like my second tattoo and they mean so much to me. The one above represents love for everyone, love for myself, love for creativity and colour, and support of people in the LGBTIQ community.
The one below is a reconnection to my younger self. Wonder Woman was my idol as a child, she could make people tell the truth with her lasso. I had believed she could save me from my abuser and make people see what was happening. She was female power and strength personified. She was everything I wanted to grow up to be. This tattoo was about honouring myself, my childhood (good and bad) and having the strength and courage to move through so much pain and heartache. It chokes me up just writing about it. Can you see a theme here? I can. My tattoos represent my passion, my strength and inner warrior.
