My first tattoo & its meaning

Hello!! After a couple of months i'm finally back with a new post!

So if you follow me on instagram you'll know that I received my first very tattoo a few weeks back. This was something I have known I've wanted for a while and once I turned 18 back in February, I was more than certain that I was going to go through with it. 

Obviously it's really important to do your research before you settle on your tattoo parlour, however I have family friends who I trusted and decided there was no need for me to go anywhere else.

I'm not here to talk about the pain or the experience today, if any of you were wondering that though, just let me know and I can sort a post out or answer any questions over on my twitter at @lilydealxo.

The reason I am here is to talk about the meaning behind my tattoo. As I mentioned earlier, this was  tattoo I had planned for a while opposed to an "oh I just turned 18, let's get a tattoo!!" don't get me wrong though, tattoo's don't have to have a meaning, they're a work of art in themselves and I am totally open minded about anyone and everyones tattoos.

If you know me, you know the amount of wanderlust I have in me just dying to escape and this Summer is where my journey starts with travelling America for 3 months. And after that, I have a whole list of places I plan to visit in my uni breaks such as Ghana, Iceland and interrail. I can't explain this feeling inside me, all I want is to see the world and meet people of all different cultures. I love to learn and I think theres only so much a textbook can teach you, I want to go out there and experience it all, I don't just want to see the pretty places, I want to experience as many cultures as humanly possible.

I like to consider myself a very open minded person and I want that to expand on my travels.

A big question I received when people heard of me getting a tattoo at 18 were "but won't you regret it when you're older?" my response was "that is exactly why I am getting it". 20 years down the line, I want to remember this wanderlust, I still want to experience different cultures, see landmarks and meet people who grew up in a totally different lifestyle to me and I want to take my kids and my family with me.

Have you got any tattoos? Whats your dream tattoo?
