There were mirrors in my dream.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram (anevilnymph), you might know that I’m in love with the Eiffel Tower and that I just can’t wait to go and visit Paris to see it for real!
Meanwhile I daydream and draw it on my desk…
Many teens have the secret dream of becoming a famous writer just like for example J.K. Rowling.
But most of them end up burying this dream deep into the dirt long before they reach adulthood and when they are past this age, becoming a writer was just like saying I wish to become a Hollywood celebrity or marry a Royal family. These of course can happen, but it happens only to 1 in a million of people.
But why do people assume that the 1 in a million can’t be YOU?
If we get discouraged and slowly build a lack of faith especially in teenage years, obviously, we won’t likely reach the dream… 100% determination and independent voice are what we need.
If we go back to our childhood, we notice that parents and relatives constantly asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up. We mainly said things like ‘pop star’ but as years passed we began to think of the possibility of achieving this job and we thought, well ‘teacher’ or ‘doctor’ is more reasonable… and approved by the others.
Requested by my fellow readers, I’m going to show you my “dream” tattoo, just that it’s not really a dream, but reality: i.e. I’m REALLY going to get my right shoulder (classic place uh? but perfect one for the 1st time :)) tattoed!
Why get a tattoo?
Because of Dan Brown! Yep, that’s his fault 🙂 He’s published The Last Symbol – his latest book – and in it the villain is a lover of tattoos and Dan Brown therefore describes tattooing as a genuine wonderful awesome art… as in fact it IS art! Not only something to show off or to scare or to intimidate (these 3 reasons are very bad ones – if these are the goals you want to reach in getting a tattoo… well you don’t deserve one).
So here’s my tattoo design:
I was inspired by Celtic patterns (google ’em for more info ^^) as I’m very interested in the old religion (now called Wiccan religion), legends and myths… especially surrounding Ireland and Britain, i.e. like Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table 😀 Love to discover and read all of these.
The star is mainly called a pentacle – a very important symbol (for the good) in the old religion.
I hope the photos aren’t too dark and that my drawing (trials to imitate) is not that bad… Of course the tattoo designer will make it more perfect 😉
One day as I was googling – one of my frequent hobbies nowadays 😛 – I came upon THIS in google images! And I’ve saved it, swearing that I would make a designer sew this for me for my little person with the right measurements and all. You might think why I didn’t buy it online, well I’m not yet 18 and therefore don’t have a credit card, plus I lost the website of the dress, and finally because the measurements wouldn’t have been good for me as I’m rather short for my age, and I guess that Europeans and Asians’s body build are different.
Isn’t it beautiful? 🙂

“Where is my child! Please let me see him!”
“She’s calling for him! Go!”
“No! Let him here with us… Let him die… It’s nearer now…”
