I’m someone who has travelled a lot, but I’d love a way to remember all my travels. I’m thinking I would like to get a sleeve tattoo that could symbolise every place I’ve been. The idea is that the tattoo would combine an icon or monument from every location I’ve ever visited to create a totally new scene. I would like it to also look a bit apocalyptic. The great thing about this idea is that I can continue to add to it the more places I visit.
I think I would like to get Brisbane’s best realism tattoo artist for this job. As much as this will be heavily stylised, I still want every element to look real. Almost like all these iconic locations are part of a scene. I don’t want it to look like I have a stack of postage stamps on my arm. After all, I’m not a passport.
This will be the first tattoo I ever get. It will probably also be the only tattoo I ever get, aside from any location additions. All my friends seem to think that once I get this tattoo, it will open the floodgates for me to want to get more ink. I don’t think it will. I know what I want, and that’s it. In saying that, I am a total blank canvas right now so I am definitely open to suggestions from the most recommended tattooist Brisbane has ever seen. I’m totally new to this, so while I may have ideas, I’m definitely no expert in what’s best.
Lately it feels like all my conversations revolve around tattoos. I can now see why my friends are how they are. Sometimes I’d feel excluded from their discussions, but I have come to now see that I simply had nothing to add because I wasn’t someone who was in the tattoo world. The great thing about being the last blank canvas in my friendship group is that I have people I can go to for advice.
