✨ A NEW BEGINNING ✨

I got a new tattoo last week!

.

It’s a butterfly that was flying around at my dad’s funeral 1.5 months ago. It was there for 20 minutes, even when it was raining a little.
.
I love how when butterflies come out from the cocoon, they actually need to rip the cocoon themselves to strengthen their wings. If you go and rip it for them, they die. It’s in the hardship they strengthen their beautiful wings.
.
I like having a tattoo as a ritual, to have an intention that will go into it and will remind me every time I look at it.
.
This one’s about many things. It’s about the hardship that makes you beautiful and who you are when you surrender. It’s about my dad’s love and presence as well as my masculine love and presence being with me. It’s about not needing validation from men anymore.
.
I have a low pain threshold and it hurt like hell. So I kept repeating the words like mantra, strength and grace, empowered action, new beginning, masculine love and presence ✨
.
Thank you Andrea Giulimondi Tattooer for the beautiful art 🙏🏼
.
Here’s to a new beginning. It’s time to fly ✨
.
Loads of love to you ❤️
