My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo is the 8-bit heart I got with my little brother. He's a video game designer and all-around nerd, and when he turned 18 I promised him that I would take him to get his first tattoo if we could get matching tattoos. I told him that he could pick anything as long as it was an accurate representation of both of us and he could pick placement. He chose an 8-bit heart Super Mario-style on the outside of our right ankle. We're really close and I'm so proud of him and I love telling people what it means and why I got it.
My next tattoo: I'm constantly debating what I'm going to get next. My last few tattoos I've gotten have been on my arms, including a half sleeve so I'm thinking I'm going to start a thigh piece next. I'm still bouncing ideas around but I'm leaning toward a doily heart because Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. And my brother and I want to get matching blue triangles with "NGUNS" [Never Give Up Never Surrender] inside to symbolize my dad, my brother and I [the three points of the triangle] and the phrase is from Toy Story and it's our family motto.
