Amor Fati - a Latin phrase loosely translating to “love of fate” or “love of one’s fate”. It’s used to describe an attitude in which one sees everything that happens in one’s life, including suffering and loss, as good. Moreover, it’s characterized by an acceptance of the events or situations that occur in one’s life.
I got this tattoo during the month of my 20th birthday. It was at a shop named Inflicting Beauty, spur of the moment. I was first introduced to the Italian phrase through my favorite artist, Washed Out’s new album, Within and Without. After reading up on the phrase I decided I wanted a tattoo of it because of how it reflects my acceptance of who I am, and represents my ascription to life.
