How important is travel to me? I would say… very! That’s why I got a travel tattoo!
I had wanted a travel tattoo for a while. It was just a matter of figuring out what to get. A map? A globe? A plane? I wanted it to be different though; something of my own creation. I’m not sure at what point I thought of doing something resembling an EKG line. After a few initial ideas, I finally came up with a drawing that I loved.
I wanted to represent my hometown of Miami and I have a thing for palm trees, so the first part of it was easy. Then, the word “wanderlust” because it is a desire that I have felt all of my life. And finally, a plane to represent going out and seeing the world.
Wanderlust – A very strong or irresistible impulse to travel
This wasn’t my first tattoo, but it had been a LONG time since my last one. And this one was going to be original, not something I picked off a wall. So I was pretty damn excited!
My friend Aymara and I met up at the tattoo shop on that Sunday morning. She had also been wanting another tattoo for a while, so we decided to get them done together. Luis, an artist who came very highly recommended, was going to be doing both of our tattoos (you can see more of his work here).
Within a few minutes, I was done…
So what do you think? Do you like my new travel tattoo? Do you have any travel tattoos?
