It's #MOPLA ! To celebrate, I'm sharing two different photo projects I worked on in the Fall of 2014. Enjoy 🙃
.
One Saturday afternoon I was hanging out with my twin sister Marilyn (my full name is Joylyn by the way...my parents were into rhyming I guess) when I had the brilliant idea that we should get matching tattoos. I had already been tattooed three times by then but I assumed I would have had to beg her to say yes. I got pretty lucky because she happened to be feeling just as spontaneous at the time, so she agreed!
.
Immediately I suggested a circle. Mainly because I just like circles. It also needed to be timeless and minimal so that Marilyn would feel good about it (it was after all her first tattoo!) We wanted something that represented a cycle, or eternity or whatever but we didn't want to do an infinity sign so we stuck with the circle. #symbolictattoos lol
.
When it came to deciding where we would put the circles we debated for awhile. Marilyn wanted to be able to hide it easily (again - first tattoo experience haha) and I wanted to be able to see it easily. We both ended up compromising by picking our shoulders. Ever since we were little when we walked side by side I stood on her right and she my left, but in doing so we always somehow ended up bumping or walking into each other. It's a really small thing that we've always noted/given each other a hard time about, so we thought we'd pick the shoulder that was closest to the other person while walking. I pulled out a quarter from my pocket and we took turns tracing a circle on each other's shoulder and left the coffee shop we were at to find a tattoo parlor.
.
Marilyn chose brown ink so a lot of people mistake her's for a temporary pen mark while the black ink in mine seemed to have not settle quite right haha. We laugh about it now. #noregrets .
