I Got Inked.. Again | Lifestyle

Tuesday, February 24, 2015


I did it! I finally got tattoo number 2! If you know me outside of the internet, you'll know that I spend probably 65% of my time either talking about getting more tattoo's or saving pins to my tattoo inspo board on pintrest

So last week I finally got round to getting this new tattoo done. It's actually something I found on pintrest and really liked the idea of it. Let me explain: Sophrosyne(Greek: σωφροσύνη) is an ancient Greek concept of an ideal of excellence of character and soundness of mind, which when combined in one well-balanced individual leads to other qualities, such as temperance, moderation, prudence, and self-control. In other languages there is no word that is a simple equivalent, but it is sometimes translated into Latin as continentia (continence and moderation) and sobrietas (temperance and sobriety).


I just thought it was a really lovely concept so of course, as one does, I decided to get it inked into my skin forever muahaha!

Please note, I know the third character along is missing a little part but I need to go back for a touch up(my skin is apparently too sensitive so he couldn't go over it a second time) anyway, so i'll get that fixed then. 

Asides from that, i'm so pleased with it! I adore the placement of it and of course the word itself now has an extra special place on my body! Pain wise, it was no more or less "painful" than my ankle tattoo. I know that everyone's tolerance for pain is different but for me, my tattoo's felt less painful and more uncomfortable if that makes sense? It just feels like scratching, I promise it's not so bad! 

So what do you think? Have you had any new tattoo's done recently? Let me know below!

  1. That looks great :) I don't have any tattoos but I'm desperate to get one done. I'm just scared that I'll regret it!

    1. If you're not sure about a design, wait until you find something you are 100% comfortable with having stamped on your body for the rest of your life! It take's time in finding the things you want, but you'll know when you know :) x
