Fun little fact. The messy "focus" tattoo you see here on my finger has a bit of a story behind it. I was studying to be a tattoo artist years ago, I've actually done most of my tattoos myself while practicing. I was both a camgirl and trying to learn all I could about tattooing at the time. I was feeling very inspired, proud that I was taking the road less travelled. I had a good support group of friends and family around me, but I had to earn that support, I had to prove to people I wasn't throwing my life away. Before this tattoo everyone around me was telling me I was a failure, that I needed to focus and find myself a "real job". But I was focused, I was focused on doing me! FUCK YOUR REAL JOBS! I can make anything of myself if I push for it! It didn't matter if people didn't believe in me because I BELIEVED IN ME. I think my parents believed in me too, that wasn't the problem. I think they were just afraid and trying to guide me in another direction. I wasn't having it though. They kept trying to motivate me to go to job interviews, they didn't understand I had no interest in "job interviews", I had a different path. First thing I did to shut people up was tattoo the fuck out of my hands. If you have face or hand tattoos, you're basically unemployable. 😂 I didn't want a boss, I believed in myself and decided to commit with tattoos! I was finding success and learning, the people around me started to understand and I drilled it into their heads that I would be ok. So, feeling inspired one night, about 3AM, I set up all my tattoo equipment to practice on some fake skin and said "FUCK IT". Without a stencil, without anything to guide me, just myself, I tattooed "FOCUS" on the finger that points in the direction I'm going and it's a beautiful mess. Just like me ❤️
Today, my Mom and Dad basically brag about my success. I love them so much.
Wanna add a thank you to @Gaunted who has been there from the beginning. Partner in crime dude
