This tattoo was done by Shawn Renner at Studio X Tattoo in Vancouver, Washington. I was a little nervous because it was my first tattoo and it was on my ribs, but he did an amazing job, and barely even hurt like I had expected it to.
I’ve always wanted this tattoo, ever since I’ve heard the song Hero, by Regina Spektor. Those specific lyrics are just extremely relevant to my life because I’m a writer, but I’m also independent and prefer to do things on my own. I think it just fits me perfectly.
