I've always said if I wanted to get a tattoo it has to be meaningful because this is permanent and painful. Mostly permanent and I want to make sure this is something I would not mind having for the rest of my life. It would have to be something that represents who I am and most importantly I wanted to create it myself.
The idea for this tattoo just came to me one in the summer as I was drawing in my sketch book. I was listening to Frank Ocean's Pyramids, such a beautiful song, mesmerizing. I've always had a fascination with Queen Nefertiti of Egypt. Her life is a mystery and to be a queen, how powerful. Past lives are unexplainable emotions but I believe in a past life, I was royalty. My opinion was of value and people looked up to me. I just know in my spirit that I lived a life of royalty at one time. So, here is the creation of my tat.
The placement is my idea and I had a henna tat the year before. I wanted to be sure and that required me to be meticulous and patient. The tat took an hour. Here's a video about my experience of getting my first tattoo.
