Tattooed Shenannies

So this happened over the weekend, guys.


That's right, this girl got tattoo number two done at Adorn

Look past the tragic curling wand scar .

The other one can be found on my foot. Now before everyone asks, because that's what happens anytime you get a tattoo.  Thy symbol technically is the symbol for air, but really, when it comes down to my reasons for getting the tattoo it wasn't because of the symbol's meaning.  I could sit here and tell you that I got it, because it represents the air that we all breathe and need to survive (you know real hippie shit), but I won't lie to you. To be honest, I just really love geometric shapes and designs and have been wanting a second tattoo for a while now. To me, tattoos are just another form of art and I, personally, don't feel like every tattoo you have has to have some deep and powerful meaning behind it. I just think they need to make you happy and I appreciate the form of art that tattooing is....then again what do I actually know?!


Also, on Sunday, Granny gave us some good advice and we used it at the Pet Aid 2013

Pet Aid was put on by our local Alternative radio station 94.7 and featured a bunch of local bands including Portugal The Man as the headliner. The event was free, but they were requesting donations for Multnomah Country Animal Services. THERE WERE PUPPIES EVERYWHERE. CUTENESS OVERLOAD. 








Plus, it was right on the waterfront at Sellwood Riverfront Park, which is always nice.


What kind of shenanigans did you get into this weekend?!

I am too much of a fraidy cat to get a tattoo but I am always so interested in what made other people choose theirs! The concert sounds great!

Jenn said...

Oh man I am craving another tattoo. I love that you are honest about why you chose it, because I hear all the time all "those" stories with made up reasoning. It's ok just to say... because I like the way it looks!

Tami said...

I love love your tat! So cool looking. And you can always make up a fake meaning. Like, oh, it's the symbol of the super cool super secret society that I'm in.

Adriana said...

love the tat. such a cool looking symbol and as long as it doesn't mean "balls" why not?!

Kalyn V said...

I've already said, I love the tat! And I definitely agree with your philosophy that not all tattoos have to have some kind of deep meaning. Maybe I just thought it was pretty?!

Can't wait to see it IRL. My 1st tat will be a bad ass scorpion after my star sign, because if I'm anything in this life it's definitely a Scorpio :)

Love the tattoo and placement! I've always wanted one but I'm too scared...of needles (eek!) I love to admire them from afar though, and yours is adorbs!

Tiana said...

I think that tattoo is quite bad ass! haha
and I'm not one to cuss! But this situation calls for it :)
And I totally love your explanation. Sometimes you just do things because you feel like it! And in my opinion, that makes it all the more spontaneous and fun.

Enjoy! Its gorgeous.
