Laura Rein. 18. Body Piercer. Tattoo Apprentice. Gemini.
I work at the Edge Tattoo in South Windsor, CT.
I am trying to find feeling and meaning in anything.
Ocean creatures. Origami. Warm tea. Stretched lobes. Sugar skulls. Chop sticks. Old-school Sailor Jerry. Mermaids. Japanese culture. Boy hoodies. Energy. Old-school nintendo. The sound of waves. Miracles. Meaningful lyrics. Throwing pottery. Inspiration. Rough Sketches. Sea glass. Hello Kitty. Protruding bones. Learning new things. Writing poetry. Photo strips. Creation. Boy things. The sound of tattoo machines.
“We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive are our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything.”
