“Be happy. Why not?”
I got this done at Regeneration Tattoo in Allston, MA. I absolutely loved it, and my artist was super nice and willing to work with me on any changes I wanted but also stayed super close to the original handwriting I had given him. I recommend it to anybody.
Those four words are the reason I’ve gotten through the last three years of my life. I first heard them in a Q&A video, in which my favorite bassist said that was the message he wanted to leave with the world. For one reason or another, the motto stuck, and I’ve been living my life by them ever since. After I saw that video, I immediately thought that one day, I wanted it tattooed, as to never forget to think about the positives in life. So, when I saw this bassist a few months later, I had him write the saying out for me. I have never seen a 20 year old man so flattered and excited and nervous all at the same time like Garrett was. Needless to say, I’m super excited to show him this next time I see him, in December.
