I turned 18 years old 9 days ago, so was finally able to get my first tattoo.
I got a blackbird in flight for two main reasons:
- A verse from a song that is important to me says “Hold your breath when a blackbird flies, count to seventeen and close your eyes, I’ll keep you safe tonight.” And for a long time I’ve had issues with feeling safe and protected, so my tattoo will be there to remind me that I will always have music.
- Two of my biggest inspirations fell in love to the song Blackbird by The Beatles, and I wish that one day I’ll find someone to love me the way they love each other.
As my first tattoo experience, it was really good and didn’t hurt in the least. It’s on the back of my left shoulder and was done by Lee @ Rebel Ink.
I know the song, and this tattoo is damn awesome
