I got my newest (4th in total) tattoo last month; and it’s on the opposite wrist from my cherry blossom/gemini one (which I MAY extend into a spiral sleeve but of course that is still in debates XD) This has got to be hands down my post personal but also most controversial. Why get an anchor with the quote “I refuse to sink” when well…. anchors sink. As it’s not hard to see it in a “logical” light; there’s really a personal metaphor to it. Anchors do indeed sink but for this piece; it’s not what it stands for. It stands for strength. If you can see; the rope is in a infinity sign. Tied together it (for me at least) it means forever strong, forever won’t give up or give in to weakness. Whether you knew or didn’t; I have dealt with depression for many many years; leading back to middle school. Some years have gone better than others; but there were moments in my past where I would have been perfectly happy to give up. However; I have fought very hard to not turn to that option. I can say I’ve gotten better over the years but it is still an on and off battle I face. Some days will always be better than others. I wanted to somehow symbolize this. It’s a. Big part of my life and how I turned out the way I did. That I am stronger than my inner demons. A lot of people around the world have gotten the semi colon for this reason. I almost was leaning towards that option but I found this one to me much more me #tattoos #tattoo #girlswithtattoos #girltattoo #anchor #infinity #infinitysign #rope #quote #quotetattoo #tattooswithmeaning #meaning #depression #strength #love #cute #controversial #wrist #wristtattoo #picoftheday #potd #personal #life #igers #filtered by a.lexxi
