This is the first session of my phoenix lotus flower tattoo. I decided to get it to help remind myself that I am not my disease and that I need to rise above it. Granted, anyone with an IBD knows that it’s not always that easy but to be it’s definitely worth reminding myself of that. It also represents finally having some answers to what’s going on with my body. Especially since it took three years to get some semblance of an idea what’s going on. We still don’t have all the questions answered but we’re slowly getting there.
My next session won’t be for a couple of months. I definitely plan on getting some color into it then. Has anyone else ever gotten ink for their IBD?
I love that you got a tattoo to remind yourself how strong you are battling IBD! I have thought about getting a tattoo but I really really dislike needles! I can’t wait to see the finished product of this tattoo! Keep us posted! 🙂
Thanks! I don’t particularly like needles either but I still enjoy getting tattoos! I’ll definitely keep everyone posted 🙂
