My New Travel Tattoo

Travel has always been an important part of my life. I love travel SO much, that I designed a travel tattoo for myself; something unique that would represent me!


I Love To Travel

How important is travel to me? I would say… very! That’s why I wanted a travel themed 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 my travel tattoo 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.


Designing My Travel Tattoo

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!


Getting My Travel Tattoo

A friend met me 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).


Since it wasn’t a large tattoo and had no color, it didn’t take very long to do. It was also in an area that didn’t really hurt. So I barely felt anything and it seemed like I was in and out of the chair in no time.
