“I believe that for his escape he took advantage of the migration of a flock of wild birds” This is my very first tattoo! I love how peekin over my shoulder at him. If you haven’t read Le Petit Prince you absolutely must! It’s my bible. Done three weeks ago by my definitely rad and definitely handsome tattoo artist Devon Peyton, at Skin Deceptions in Boise.
Since 3rd grade I’ve suffered with major depression, anxiety, and OCD. Throughout the years, I have tried committing suicide 4 times. Each string on the marionette stands for each time I attempted. The two broken strings were the times that I couldn’t pull myself through to be strong, and was admitted into psychiatric treatment. The two strings still holding on are the times I brought myself above my thoughts, and got help myself. The marionette itself stands for the constant control
“What fools these mortals be,” a quote from my favorite play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Shakespeare. Also, written in my handwriting. And, alongside it, a beautiful wing that bends to the curve of my elbow rather ingeniously, thanks to the artist. Done at Classic Tattoo in San Marcos, Texas.
