Behold my two new tattoos, I am so in love with them! A lovely new friend of mine Shelly did these for me, we had such a lovely evening together and I’ll always think of her when I see these pieces. If you live in the Spokane area I cannot recommend Shelly and her Father highly enough, here’s a link to their Facebook, really worth checking out, Inked310.
I am one of those people who likes their tattoos to have some meaning behind them so let me talk you through them, it won’t take long I promise.
As well as being ridiculously cute this heart is also very..well…heartfelt, for lack of a better word. I’ve lost many pets over my life time, and recently lost two in a close space of time. I’m a huge animal lover and have taken every loss of a furry family hard. I always wanted to commemorate them somehow and I thought this little heart would be perfect as (prepare for corniness) every one of my pets will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Whilst looking for ‘wanderlust’ tattoo ideas I kept bumping into this quote, “miles to go”. Curiosity lead me to the poem it belongs to and I was astounded. Not just by the beautiful imagery of the poem but by how relevant the message is to me and this moment of my life. I’ll leave you to enjoy said poem..
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
