I started getting tattoos after I had taken the time to process my experience with depression and suicide. I knew I wanted a record of all the things that bring me joy that I almost gave up that day. It started small and slowly but surely grew into a full sleeve and beyond. I worked closely on the designs with Bob Hodge Tattoo of Snake & Tiger in Leeds and am really happy with the results.
This is a way for me to never forget what I enjoy in life as I once did. It's here forever to remind me that no matter how bad I feel, or how dark it is, that there is joy in my past and can be in my future once again.
