I have a soft spot for keys. It isn’t easily explained, not without talking about my past more than I feel comfortable with on the internet to a bunch of strangers, so I’ll just leave it as a mystery.
I drew this up to get as a tattoo. The fact that I’m posting this is a huge deal. I’ve designed each of my tattoos and never showed anyone until they were on my body. The first time I designed a tattoo for myself and showed someone, they took the design and got it, then claimed that they had designed it.
That really hurt. I had spent so much time on it and she took it without a second thought. But this design is very special to me, and I wanted to share it with everyone. Before I get a tattoo I spend a lot of time making sure the design is just right. I think this one is finished.
It’ll go on my right forearm and be filled in with black, just a silhouette of a beautiful, old skeleton key.
I’m not even going to lie, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to think about.
