Ink







I got another 2 tattoos done a couple of days back by Julian at Hounds of the Baskervilles, really love the new place he's at now. The whole old school barber and gentleman concept going on, didn't manage to get proper pictures of the shop but I'll try to when I head back for my touchup.



The first being an add on to my anchor " Wild Hearts Never Break "
Those who know the meaning of my anchor will understand what I mean when I say the quote is a perfect juxtapose to the anchor. 
The kind of wild I'm referring to can be found in Natasha Beddingfield's song " Wild Horses".
That song was basically the whole inspiration for the quote.



Very often in love, I lose myself. I let myself get tied down, fitted into a mould and hold back on the things I want to do. Then I get my heart broken, and I'm left with nothing to hold on to. 
Maybe, just maybe...
If I were to remind myself to be like the wild horses, I'd love myself more.
Perhaps get my heart broken a little lesser.



The second "comprehension" as Julian calls it, says
" Let me be patient, Let me be kind
Make me unselfish without being blind.
I may have faith to make mountains fall,
but if I lack love then I am nothing at all."


This was a quote I saw just two weeks back, and I fell in love with it instantly. 
I was only supposed to get the first quote done, but with a few hours to kill before work and Julian having zero appointments on his first day back, I decided, why not?
After all it was only a matter of time before I'd get it done.



I'm the kind of idiot who's just too damn nice, and maybe too giving so it's a reminder to be less of a dodo bird when it comes to people. 
I run into a lot of walls because of that, and I can only be damn thankful that as much as there are a hell lot of fuckers that I meet, my closest friends are genuine people who are always protecting me.



And then there's the undying faith, blind faith even, that I hope I'd never lose. 
And of course, love.
After all, I really am nothing without love. 
There's no greater driving force in my life than love, not just for friends, family, partners but also the things I do. 
I refuse to ever raise that white flag on love, and to always always do everything with love.




So, with two more tattoos down, I'm looking a lot more like a story book. 
Would I ever regret my tattoos?
Never.
They are a reminder of who I am, who I want to be, and who I will be.




Okay it's 4.30, I have to be up in two an a half hours for work at SIM. God, it's so bloody far from Tampines. I can't imagine how horrendous my mornings must be next year when I enrol. 
I sincerely abhor mornings. 
And if anyone wants to get tattoos done especially old school traditional style, Julian's the go-to-man. 
Hit him up on facebook at " Julian Kyla Tattooer " 






I hope I wake up tomorrow feeling a little less like a dying whale.
The past few days haven't been easy.
