Unfortunately, I didn’t come up with this design - the clever, wonderful folks at BlendApparel did. But when I saw it, I fell absolutely in love.
They call it “Lo(ve)-Fi” since it’s a twist on the Wi-Fi symbol on Apple products. Funnily enough, within days of getting this tattoo two years ago, I had been hired by a local Apple store, which, though I’m not there anymore, ended up being one of the biggest, most important parts of my life.
Anyway, to me, it’s my reminder to treat others with love. I believe that we’re given a chance at this life to leave it better than how we found it, and I think one of the best and most powerful ways to get there is through love. So, when people are rude or unkind, I look at my left wrist (where the tattoo is) and treat them with love. And, since Wi-fi also picks up signals, it also serves as a reminder that the love I send out will someday come back to me. It’s a symbiotic relationship, and I need to always make the conscious decision to keep my end of the bargain up!
I got it done at Tattoo Lou’s in West Babylon, Long Island.
