I'm planning my second tattoo!
EDIT AND DISCLAIMER: my tattoo will be on my wrist - not on my neck like this photo. And it wouldn't be completely round - it'd be more like two things, the black and the white, rather than a circle.
There are few things that I've recently done that beat the high of getting my first tattoo. I was insanely scared but knew I wanted to do it. And afterward it just felt amazing. I loved it so much and I was so proud of myself for going through with it.
It's true what they say: tattoos are addictive. I've been planning number two since, well, pretty much since I peeled the plastic off number one! But they're also a commitment for life, so it's always advised to think before you ink - we don't want to end up like this girl, now do we?
Yin and yang is such a powerful symbol for me. Since I started yoga and meditation, focusing on a sense of balance has been key to me. Remembering that life is a roller coaster of ups and downs. That for every dark patch, a lighter one will follow. Striving to live in harmony with the universe.
...and plus, I just love the look of it. It's small, it's chic, it's not something I'll ever get sick of.
Love this pic - I adore chipped nail polish!
Except now, David had to go and ruin it all for me.
-But it's ROUND!
He is very observant: the yin and yang is, indeed, round. That's another thing I love about it: it's neat and round and would go great on my wrist.
-It'll end up lopsided and look like crap. Don't do it. At least not on your wrist.
-No. It. Will. Look. Bad. And you will regret it.
He won't have it: there is no way, according to him, that a yin and yang tattoo will ever look good. Not even if the London Ink guys do it. Solution: I'm thinking of letting him design it, just as he did with my first tattoo. That way, he can't ever tell me it's bad: it would be like spitting on his own art.
What do you guys think? Am I right or is David right? Is yin and yang a good idea or will it end up looking crooked and terrible?
(I'm probably going to go ahead and do it regardless, but I'm still curious to know what you think!)
