Travelling Tattoos

Something you all may not know about me is that I absolutely love tattoos, and I mean love them. There’s just something about tattoos..


As Kat Von D said, “I am a canvas of my experiences, my story is etched in lines and shading, and you can read it on my arms, my legs, my shoulders, and my stomach.”


I mention tattoos because I myself have a few already, one of which is travel related. It’s my wanderlust tattoo, and it’s as simple as it sounds, written across my foot. It does mean an awful lot to me.

Wanderlust to me is a word that describes how I feel so prefectly; the desire to wander or travel the world. The positioning of it was completely meant too. Tattooed on my foot, as it’s your feet that you use to walk or wander around. As simple as the tattoo is, I did put a lot of thought into why and where I wanted it. It was a tattoo that I had wanted for a few years before I finally got it and what makes it mean more to me is the fact that I did in fact get it when on a holiday.

But, this isn’t what this post is all about, oh no. As some of you may know in a few months time I will be going on a road trip across America with 3 of my best friends and we actually plan on getting a matching tattoo to commemorate our trip together. I plan on getting mine towards the end of our trip in San Francisco, although my friends plan on waiting until we get back home, I personally think it will mean even more to me getting it done there and then in America rather than waiting until we get back. I’m not going to let you all in on the secret of what our tattoo is going to be so you will all need to keep an eye out until June/July when I update you all with a post showing our tattoos, until then it’s a guessing game!



What about yourselves, do you have any tattoos to remember a trip or place by? Or maybe you’ve just gotten one when you were in a foreign country, comment and let me know!
