My tattoo virginity was stabbed away today by my dear sistafriend @joshuanightfury aka @mothmilk aka finley, which is already so meaningful in itself! I feel so honored to wear her creation on my skin!
This tattoo continued to develop with so much synchronicity and significance. From the moment I saw it, it called me. The overarching meaning was revealed in a dream the next night and it continues to unfold with more affirmations.
I asked the Universe for confirmation on whether or not this was right for me & pulled up to a friend’s house with a gate of a sun and a moon. I then shared the story with a group of friends and one was typing the words “sun and moon” at the same time & was reminded of the eclipse back in August multiple times this week. It’s already a reminder of being in the flow.
For me, this tattoo is about owning my polarity as a gift. It’s owning my ability to speak light into the shadows, seeing that as a blessing to be a catalyst for transformation.. my way of service is to be an eclipse for people; a bringer of change, leaving what is safe and comfortable in order to grow more fully into ourselves & to be a shining light in that process that helps people feel safe in that. It’s using this symbol to activate my throat, to share my truth, and to express from that place. And because it’s a tattoo, it’s about going through the ‘pain’ it takes to fully own it, when sometimes that means feeling rejected, uncomfortable, or misunderstood. It’s about working with duality, both shadows and light, the sun and the moon, all of my Gemini self and seeing their wholeness.
Overall, it’s about learning to love and accept myself fully, to see these qualities that I rejected for so long as my sacred gifts.
I am so grateful for these gifts. I feel like I’m stepping into myself. Owning it. Reclaiming it. & i’m so grateful for the hands and heart who was able to put all of those words and feelings into this! Thank you for encouraging me to be my most ME in this world, Fin!
