ARROW TATTOO

© The life of Joy – Joy van Zetten. Cross tattoo.

Last week in the tattoo vlog you could see me getting a new tattoo. You probably saw the design, but you might not know what this means to me. This is number 14. Yes, I know, I will not turn into a old crazy cat lady, but into a old crazy tattoo lady. I am fine with that by the way. In my big tattoo post you can see 10 tattoo’s and the meaning behind them.

Back to my double crossed arrow tattoo. You must have heard of the arrow quote before; ‘ An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.’ I always loved it.

Two crossing arrows are also a symbol of a compass. One arrow represents my heart, the other my head. May they both guide me, like a compass, but when time is there I need to focus on one. And trust the one can make the shot.

I love it, and I love my story. Oh the diamond? Just to make is less boring, it fits really well in de design. I am really happy with it. It looks like the tattoo artist did it with a ruler. Tight af.

Do you like my new cross tattoo? Do you have any?
