✨ 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 ❤️

NEW TATTOO 😍🔻

First tattoo ever as well! I love this triangle on my left foot ❤️

.

The idea came to me literally a week ago, this triangle representing water, flow and surrender. I remind myself every day, not to go into overdrive and autopilot but rather, slow down. Come back to flow and surrender 💙
.
I was terrified, couldn't believe I was going with an idea I got a week ago, did everything to sabotage and cancel it, then stopped my own drama and went,
.
Ok is it true for me to get this tattoo?
.
Yes.
.
Its a representation of me truly stepping into my feminine, a chapter of growing up is closing and a new one, stepping into my adult womanhood, is beginning.. That's why there was a lot of resistance. So I went for it 🙌🏼
.
Aaron's sister did it for me. She set up a bedroom so beautifully like a cocoon, with so much love. It felt like a ritual. With every needle going in, I asked her to repeat flow and surrender. So she did 🙏🏼
.
I felt them holding space for me. It didn't hurt as much as I thought. I imagined how 2018 looks like for me, set some intentions. Then 15 mins later we started watching Friends 😃 (love Friends ❤️)
.
When I put my hand on it, I can literally feel love, flow, surrender coming out of it. And each time I look at it, I smile 🙏🏼 Remembering how easy doing something can be, when it feels true ✨
