My favorite little gem done by the forever lovely Jenn Small Holladay at Hell City Tattoo convention 2012 in Columbus, Ohio! We are from the same town in NC, but I recently moved to Ohio. Jenn currently works at Blood Sweat and Tears, in Charlotte, NC. But when I heard she was going to be in town, I HAD to see her! Hope you love it like I do!

This is my first tattoo, done by Ringo Lion, at Darkside Body Art in Houston, TX USA. I’ve wanted an anchor tattoo for the longest time, and despite how cliche anchor tattoos have become, I still really wanted one. I like to think that this one trancends the stale “I refuse to sink” anchor tattoo. The severed rope up top, defines the refusal to “sink to the bottom” cutting off the things that weigh me down, and not letting them get the best of me. Inside the portrait is a sun set, because nothing lasts, everything sets like the sun at the end of the day. I struggle with depression and anxiety, this tattoo is a reminder that I can make it out, and live my life ‘til the end, without being crushed by the weight, and dismayed by it.
