This is one part of me that not everybody knows. Probably because I am always showing off my strong personality and being brave is what I portray. With all those extreme adventures (and sports) that I love doing, who would ever thought that there is weakness that lies in me?
One day, impulsively, I decided to get inked. This design was suggested by my good friend, Benj, who is a "walking sketch pad" coz they often tell me I'm such an emo so this line would reflect my personality.
I got inked a few days after Dr. Doom and I broke up but that doesn't mean he was the sole reason why I did this (okay, I'm being defensive, I know). It was because of several things:
- I have long been wanting to get one, it was just not easy when you have a doctor boyfriend (he didn't impose it tho, it was my decision not to do it when we were still together);
- Out of curiosity, I wanted to find out if the process is really painful (actually, it was, at first.. followed by numbness after a few strokes);
- As they say, "conquer your fears" and it felt so good. I was too scared at first that my friends told me I was so pale when we were heading toward the artist's shop;
- I may lack physical strength, but it's always been easy for me to bear emotional pain. I wanted it reflected through this tattoo, hence, "Victory favours those who take pain."
It's been a year. It's my tattoo's 1st birthday.
It's been a year as well since my last ultimate heartbreak and this tattoo tells me how courageous this woman can get. This beautiful scar on my back never fails to remind me that it takes a certain dose of pain for you find your way to happiness.
I may haven't found my bliss yet. But I am hopeful that it'll come soon. Now that I am better, I think there is no reason for me not to get there in time. :)
