Sacred tattoo, changing life…

I took this photo during a tattooing ritual at a friends house over the weekend. It’s also known as a “BTW” (Body Transformation Weekend). People gather in a sacred space and transfer energy to those that are getting tattooed. Many are for very specific reasons, such as a change they wish to happen in their life, moving forward. Some are dedications to loved ones lost.

This particular weekend was quite meaningful to me because three of my very close friends were getting tattooed all for various reasons. It helped me realize what it is I want to do with my life, with the creative energy I have inside that’s basically busting out at the seams. Yesterday, I officially applied to college. I’ll be going for Studio Art. I’m super nervous because it’s been a good 14 years since I’ve been in school, but I know this is the right decision.

Change can be wonderful 🙂
