I finally got my 5th tattoo done yesterday. I have to say I'm loven it. (good thing right?) This has been an idea I have been playing around with for a while. This tattoo was inspired by a song by the British girl band Little Mix. In the song "We Are Who We Are" the girl sings "We are who we are, pretty's just a pretty word. And I'm going to shine like a star, Cause I'm the only me in this world..." That part of the song has really stuck with me. My whole life I have struggled with being very self contentious with the way I look. I was teased constantly growing up, I got teased onhow I looked what I wore and how I acted. Even as an adult it has stuck with me. It seams stupid that as an adult I'm still worried about the little things in life like this. But that's just the world we live in.
I was always the girl who said "I will never get lyrics tattooed." It will be there for the rest of your life. Its apart of you. To get lyrics tattooed in my mind you had to be really committed to the band or the song you were getting. Favorite songs and bands fade fast but tattoos last. When I heard this song for the first time a few years ago I fell in love with the lyrics. And I knew right away that I wanted to get it done. As a reminder to myself that being pretty isn't something that I need to strive for in others eyes. That as long as I feel good with myself then that's all that matters. Cause like it says "pretty's just a pretty word." Feeling pretty is a state of mind and if you put yourself in the right mindset then you are golden. Now I'm not going to turn into one of those girls that goes around thinking they are better then everyone and that nothing can hurt me. Cause lets be real even the hardest of bitches get their feelings hurt. It's just there for the days when I'm feeling low and myself esteem is down to remind me to be me and not let the haters get me down. The song is posted below. For those of you who wanna check it out.
