My beautiful new tattoo done by Keith Wheeler at Exodus in CT. <3 
It means a lot to me, I got it to cover my scars from self harm, ever since I began meditating my anxiety and derealization disorder has slowly begun to affect me less and less and I’ve since stopped self harming. Namaste friends:::D xx

This is my first tattoo. It&#8217;s of the South, Middle and North Sister mountains in Central Oregon. They represent not only my favorite mountain range, great memories from the place I grew up, but it is also a representation of my two sisters and I.

I have a butterfly on my forearm (posted by fyeahtattoos in 2010!) that represents my soul’s journey through my experiences in life. Although many of those experiences are unexpected (both good and bad), I have control over how I deal with them and how I grow from them. 
My moon adds to the same theme, representing those things that we cannot control, and the universality of life’s struggles. Every person on this planet has a moon in their sky, and no matter how hard they might try there is no changing that. You can only accept it’s existance and appreciate it for what it is. 
The peachy colors and the dark outline were all purposeful. 
The tattoo artist is Asa Rogers, at Lit Tattoo in Denver.

I got this from the artist I&#8217;m learning under, his name is Cesar Perez and works at Body Marx in CT, (USA). One day in the middle of cleaning tubes we started discussing vaguely what we liked in tattoos. During the conversation it was like word vomit and I said I would donate my left arm to him to do whatever he wanted. So we closed up shop one night and went to work. It took five hours and I&#8217;m happy with how it came out. Currently over the next two months we are going to work together to create a movie themed sleeve including characters and clips from Van Helsing, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Critters, and other movies. Sometimes you don&#8217;t really need a reason or even meaning. Just because is good enough.
