Finally found a platform for my love for Star Wars
“My life works on a simple principle: Eat, Star Wars and Sleep. I am 20 and my room is flooded with star war toys, t-shirts and it’s all other accessories. Whenever it comes to the expression of my love, an idea of getting a Tattoo always popped up in mind because it will remain with me for my entire lifetime. But my decision never came to the forefront because I never encountered any good design of star war till now. Also, I am not so creative to develop a tattoo design on my own. I was just surfing few of the social sites and suddenly my eyes stopped on the article on Facebook saying “Zayn Malik gets Star Wars tattoo that glows in the dark.” I became his fan as soon as I read the title. I read the whole article and the photograph of his tattoo gave me a solution to all my answers. I just saved the picture of his tattoo on my phone and rushed to the nearest tattoo artist. One week after the appointment, I got my finger inked with star war tattoo and yes I can say “The force is with me.” Thanks to Zayn Malik who influenced me to get a tattoo of a lifetime.”
Skin is a playground, let’s play Football
“When I was 3 my parents gifted me a football and since then my birthday gift has always been a football. Being a Messi Maniac, I never ever missed his any match or even interview. I just started to search a good photo of Messi so that I can take my love for him to my skin forever. One day I accompanied one of my friends to a tattoo salon as she was getting her tenth tattoo on her neck. I was fascinated as soon as I entered the salon and I just started to discuss my tattoo idea with their tattoo artist. Our 30 minutes of brainstorming finally gave me a perfect picture of Messi to be inked on my arm. I took no time to finalize it and asked him to ink me on the spot.”
