I never shared my first tattoo properly on social media, it was just a little too personal to talk about, but here is my second which has just finished healing 😊
I've always been acutely aware of how the weather and sunshine affect my mood. 🌨️
I'm grouchy and more irritable in winter. I get home from work in the dark and just want to shut down.
In summer, even if it isn't super warm (which let's be honest, it hardly ever is in the north of England!) I still have the motivation to continue my day. I want to be incredibly social. I want to connect with people and laugh and share. I have so much energy.
I've come to realise that I don't need external forces to change my mood; I can do it all myself, from within. So this tattoo reminds me that I have the power to change how I feel and respond to situations. I wanted the sun with me wherever I went.
I later decided to incorporate the moon into my sun, to remind me to stay balanced. I've had a tendency to run myself into the ground in the past and I've had to learn how to put boundaries and self care into place. This tattoo is about reminding me that I am in control and I have the ability to look after myself 🙏
(And apologies for the weird arm angle... It's on my inner bicep so a bit tricky to take a photo of! 😂 Oh and the actual design was not by me, but my tattoo artist changed it so much it's hardly recognisable from the initial drawing!)
