Autism - Tattoowise
So last xmas i've been building up the courage, and the dosh to get my first ever tattoo! Now some might wonder what the big thing is about getting one but for me, well.. i have a phobia of needles, i have NO pain level whatsoever that you could call easy to put up with, i mean, i'm the girl that get's a paper cut and i'm dyin! so finally i'd the cash, finally ran out of excuses and finally found a tattoo shop that i felt comfortable with. So yesterday was the big day. went down, got sorted and explained what i was after. As most people on here, facebook and whoever know me, will know my son is autisic, so for my first tattoo i wanted to dedicate it to him. I got the autism awareness ribbon and the flag because i'm a winner! I've got the most loving, careing, smart and funny little boy in the world. (ok, so i'm biased but i'm allowed to be) he gives me great joy, he teaches ME something new everyday, I'm learning HIS world and how to adapt ours to suit his needs and i love hearing
my new tattoo for autism
Done by Markuss Decker of Tattooed Heart in Glenn Burnie, MD.
My new tattoo. The autism puzzle pieces.
First he did some gray work on himself, then he updates Mama's ink
Autism tattoo flames. This tatt was done for our daughter that was diagnosed this year. It is my own spin on how I wanted the autism symbol to look for me.
Autism tattoo butterfly is my version of the autism symbol of a puzzle with a piece missing. My daughter was diagnosed this year and my husband and I decided to get it done. I chose a butterfly because I know that she will always have autism but with love and support she will fly.
That little purple daisy has become part of my own healing as I begin to accept my daughter's diagnosis. I love the transformation from a simple flower to my own version of the symbol for autism.
Out with the old. Covered up an old tattoo with something more meaningful.
Three random tattoo ideas
my new tattoo of the tarot card strength by Jory Helmes at Bullyboy tattoos in Duncan, B.C.
I have a 'Love is Louder' tattoo myself on my wrist.. just thought i'd look around and find if anyone else had any and i only found a few - here they are!
i hate explaining the meaning of my tattoo to people.. obviously, if they haven't heard of the Love Is Louder campaign they're not gonna know what it is, but it just annoys me when they're like, well, what does that mean? and then they think just because it has 'love' in it, it's about love and romance.. but no.
Love Is Louder is an anti-bullying/anti-hate campaign, whether that be self-hatred or towards other people. It helps give a voice to those who have no confidence in themselves or others. for me, the main movement branching out of Love Is Louder is 'Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect'. I don't think people understand how much pressure there is in society these days.. to be pretty, skinny, talented, smart, confident.. it's just so hard to live up to those standards, especially when you don't believe you're ANY of that stuff. So, this campaign/movement just reminds you shouldn't give in to the pressures of society and focus on being the best you that you can be, because everyone else is taken.
People have stronger connections with other movements that come out of Love Is Louder.. depending on what they're going through, etc.
