"Give a man a fish and feed him for the day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime."
The middle symbol of my tattoo is an Ancient North African symbol that represents a net and a fish, which epitomises the proverb above. The wings have another meaning very close to my heart 👼🏽💚
One of the many reasons as to why I love that proverb is because we seem to take for granted the smallest of things, one being the ability to learn and learn rapidly. Whether that be learning how to multiply and/or life lessons we learn regardless. The appreciation of valuing these lessons is what I'm trying to convey.
This is the first of many tattoos to come and for the many that asked YES, this tatt hurt like a bitch! (The middle symbol hurt the most!) 💉The outlining was the most painful part, but it was a tolerable pain. The shading did not hurt. In terms of aftercare, it took a week to heal but you really do have to take care of it ☝🏼
Word of advice, PUT SOME THOUGHT INTO IT! The thought process of this design actually took about 2 years and even then I still wanted part of it redesigned! #inked4life
