#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 12 – Tattoo Time (Again)
Yesterday I visited Lyle Tuttle tattoo shop in North Beach, San Francisco to get a tattoo (or two). It’s been over two years since I got my last tattoo so I was long overdue. My friends Alanna and John picked me up and we had a full-on tattoo party at the shop, complete with beers (I don’t drink beer but I had a sip lol) and tattoos all around. “Nowhere to go but everywhere” is from On the Road Again by Jack Kerouac. Even as a simple, standalone statement like that, out of context, I believe it’s so fitting for me because it represents how much travel has become a part of me. Travel has taught me so much about the world and about myself, and for me, this quote conveys a life on the open road, full of endless possibilities, centered around travel and the enriching experiences it brings. The second tattoo is a Penrose Triangle. It’s an “impossible” object that represents strength and infinity. I love the idea of an object that’s “impossible” in the physical, but is possible in our minds because we can obviously think it/see it/process it. For me, it’s a visual reminder to take steps toward achieving the impossible.
This vlog feels a little different from my others, because it’s more real-time and casual (it doesn’t have me sitting in front of the camera in my room and talking about a past experience to reflect back on it), and I plan on doing many more in this format. They’re much easier to shoot/edit this way so it hopefully means more videos consistently. This is the goal for the new year.
Happy Holidays to you all! Sending you all my love. Enjoy!
PS. Sorry mom and dad. Love you both. 😀11 awesome people like this post
