Can you draw a tree that doesn’t look like a broccoli? Well, I can’t, and this is why I need your help.
Since I’m going to be leaving home in a few short months for college (gasp!), I want to get a tattoo to symbolize how my family will always be with me throughout life, so I settled on the idea of getting a tattoo of a tree to represent a family tree and to serve as a reminder to always stand tall, be proud and stay strong.
The only problem, though, is that I can’t draw a tree without it looking like a broccoli. So I’m turning to the wonderful members of the blogging community for help!
What should my tree tattoo look like? I’ve already asked a couple of my friends to draw some sketches for me, but I thought I’d ask you guys as well, if you are willing and have any free time on your hands to help me out. I know I want it to have leaves, which just makes the problem worse, since I can generally draw a barren tree just fine. In fact, I’m thinking of getting an aspen tree as it symbolizes determination and overcoming fears.
In addition, I’m planning on getting it on my ankle, so it isn’t on display all the time, but I can still see it easily. However, because I’m going to get it on my ankle, it does have to be a small drawing, which makes it hard to do any small details (a few of my friends were not happy about this).
Also, if you have any advice about getting tattoos, I would be more than happy to hear it! For instance, how long should I wait to get this tattoo? A couple of friends said that I should wait at least six months from when I first get the idea to actually getting the tattoo. Also, how bad does a getting a tattoo hurt? Some people tell me it’s just like a cat scratch and others tell me that it’s the worst kind of pain possible.
Any advice is welcome, since I want to make sure that I won’t regret anything 🙂
