My latest tattoo.
Never Surrender is a Combichrist song [the logo is under ‘never’] which I first heard at their gig last year, they just kept repeating this phrase, and I was like, fuck yeah.
This tattoo is to help me through difficult times, it’s on my wrists so I can always see it and hopefully every time I go to harm myself I will see this and find the strength not to. The heart is to remind me to love myself.
This took a lot of courage ‘cause I can’t handle anything being on my wrists or them being exposed! I had a recurrent nightmare as a kid that if I left my wrists/underarms on display, this group of needles would come to life and stab me. Every time I tried to look at that side of my wrists to try and prepare myself for getting a tattoo there I’d feel sick. In the end I just did it ‘cause it was so important to me, the best way to get over a fear is to just do it. That’s how I’m not scared of rollercoasters anymore.
Also, it was very painful.
