This is my Sequoia sempervirens (Coast Redwood). My family has had a ranch passed down through the generations since 1900 located in Santa Cruz, CA, in the midst of the coastal Redwood forest. It has always been our home away from home; personally, it is where I am truly content. Being there amongst the Redwoods makes me think of my grandparents (who are my ultimate role models) and even though they are gone now, I still feel them there. Now I’ll remember them every time I look down at my arm. Also, Redwood trees symbolize strength, stability, and growth, which are all characteristics I hope to possess throughout life. And if you didn’t know already, it is the California state tree. So wherever I end up settling in life, I’ll always remember my roots. This was done by Christina Ramos at True Tattoo in Hollywood and I praise her for the amazing job she did. Oh and for all of you who want to ask, “Did it hurt?” Probably one of the most painful experiences of my life, but it was worth it.

Today I got my first tattoo. 
The feeling of the absurd arises when one’s search for meaning comes into conflict with an irrational and meaningless universe. If there is inherent meaning for this life, I cannot know it. Longing for purpose is a waste of time. Life can be more fulfilling without meaning or significance.
I remain aware of the absurdity of existence. I do not reject it nor succumb to it. I simply accept it and allow this awareness to liberate my existence as it allows me to create my own meaning.
Basically I just really like Camus, haha.
