Getting a tattoo is a tough decision. It's for life. Each tattoo design represents who you are, your aspirations in life and represents your past that has a big impact of who you have become.
I never thought of getting a tattoo in my younger years. Maybe because I wasn’t impressed by the idea of having one or stain my skin with inks in a form of art. I have nothing against people with tattoos all over their bodies. My brothers have their own tattoos and I love it, each design is a work of art.
By the time I got pregnant, it suddenly occurred to me that I must get a tattoo : to honor my son, Ocean. I wanted to see a representation of him every day, carry a representation of him everywhere I go and maybe perhaps, remember him each time I see my wrist with his name by the time I have dementia in my future years. Since I am into traveling, if there's one design I'd like to have, these are my top picks (all photos were taken from Google images.)
