Done at the California Emporium in West Asheville by Wade Elder.
My tattoos took about twenty minutes. I spent 2 days and quite a few hours at the shop while Chase had his left sleeve finished with all sorts of beautiful shades of blue by the very sweet and talented Emily Roberts.
I knew that I wanted a tattoo on my right arm right there in blue since I was about 18. What exactly I wanted was in limbo til about a year ago. There was a day and a moment and a series of fantastic events that lead me to get the spiral. It’s a reminder to myself that I’m not crazy for living my life the way I choose. The minute Wade put the stencil on my arm there was a rush of overwhelming emotion and a sigh of relief that it was finally there.
The X is a reminder of 1 verse from one song by the XX who’s album cover is simply an X. “I think we’re superstars” If you’ve ever read The Alchemist I think the meaning to me would be similar to saying we all have a ‘Personal Legend’ it’s a reminder to follow your heart and to try to be the best person I can be every day
