My First Tattoo Experience

By 8:00 AM

Well, I finally did it.


After years of wanting tattoos, I finally decided to get my first one this week.


It honestly didn't hurt too much overall. When he started it, I was surprised at how it felt. It wasn't as painful as I anticipated. However, once he got to the middle of it (around my spine), it was definitely more painful. But it wasn't unbearable, just uncomfortable. On a scale of 1-10 for pain, I'd give it an overall 5. Not bad, but not painless.


The quote I got, "La vie en rose," means "life in pink." I interpret this as seeing life through rose colored glasses. It's always held significance for me, mostly because I have always been a glass half-full kind of person. Being an idealistic dreamer, I like to see the positivity in life and beauty in everything.



However, it's been a struggle for me lately. My once-optimistic personality has become a little bitter by life in the past few months. Unfortunately, I've let the obstacles in my life influence my mind in a negative way. I wanted to get this tattoo now to symbolize this time in my life, and to remind me to see the beauty in my dreams.
