I’ve been considering this idea for the better part of a year now. I think it’d be a good ‘starter’ tattoo as it’s pretty simple and small and I’ve even been to get it done but got a little worried about the placement after the artist told me I’d have trouble with it healing (especially as this was right before attending a few dirt and mud ridden festivals).
The design is ‘IV’ – as in roman numerals for ‘4’, nothing with intravenous connotations… My reasoning behind this is that the number seems to reoccur quite a lot in my life, for example every section of my birth date ends in 4. I also have a lot of memories atached with the number; the fourth time my best friend and I ever met we went on a week long tour, just the two of us. We’ve been pretty much inseparable ever since!
I was 14 (again, ENDING in 4…) when I was introduced to one of my closest friends, who in turn developed a strong bond with 2 of my other friends and we’re still a very tightly knit group of (four) friends to this day.
All I really need to decide on is a font. Far too much of a perfectionist…
