My first tattoo, done in American Typewriter, 72 pt. font. I wanted something vintage, something real, and something that wasn’t elegant. Because life is not elegant, even at the best of times; it’s short, bold, and to the point.
This was a reminder to myself, a command really, to start living my life to its fullest, to stop drifting around in a sea of mediocrity. Because being alive is different than merely existing. Until the day I die, this will always be burned onto my skin, and that’s the way it should be.
