New Tattoo & A New Hairdo

Since I find myself in a new city, at a new school, and in a new house… Why not get a new tattoo and a new hairdo to seal the deal!? Change can be frightening, but when you throw yourself into it and embrace the newness with an open heart and an open mind, it can be really exciting and rewarding.

I caught myself feeling pretty cheerful about my lovely new life today, so I took a few shameless selfies to share! I’ve been a redhead before, but this red is a bit more daring than I’m used to. I love it!

As for my new ink, I gave this change a lot of thought before actually going through with it. I finally came up with this design and I am really happy with it. One bird for each of my immediate family members to signify that I never have to fly solo. The placement of the tattoo is meaningful too – on my foot because my family is my foundation in life. No matter how rocky things get I can always count on them to be a solid and grounding influence.

Thanks for sharing in these exciting changes with me!! It’s so nice to be able to share all of this on my little corner of the web, and with all of you lovely people. I’m so excited to see what else is in store for me as I stumble down this new path my life is taking.

* If you like my tattoo, feel free to draw inspiration from the idea but please do not copy it exactly. I worked very hard with my tattoo artist to make sure that I ended up with a unique and meaningful piece. Make sure you do the same, so that when someone asks you “Where did that idea come from?” you don’t have to say “Some girl’s blog…” ;)


  1. I love your tattoo, it's gorgeous :)

    I agree that people need to put more effort with what they get.
    I collaborated with my artist with I design I did esentially and it's the most unique and beautiful tattoo, no one else has it :-)
