Hello, my lovely humans whom I adore, you all good? Fabulous. In a weird turn of events, Melbourne is dipping into cold (no, not just colder – actively cold) weather . . . which means through no fault of my own I’ve been making weird choices. It’s not me, it’s mother nature.
So the other day the lovely Priya and I had what was meant to be a blogging day, which soon devolved into something entirely other. Our initial plan was to do a cafe hop wherein we would change our outfits each stop and film a lookbook. It was going to be productive as fuck, fun and we’d get some great content out of it. Did that happen?
Of course not, is the title of this post anything to do with a lookbook?
We woke up, it was freezing and we both agreed that . . . changing clothes in this weather was just too much effort. So we decided to meet up, go to a pretty cafe for breakfast and have a general blog planning day. Edit some things together, brainstorm some ideas, take some outfit photos and just have a chill one. Did we do that?
No, is the title of this post “A Casual Melbourne OOTD”?
So what did we do, you ask? Well, take a look at the title, kids – we went and got us some (somewhat) spontaneous tattoos! Because we promote thought out, responsible actions on this blog! If you want more deets on what we got up to, as well as an incredibly cute and well-edited video and a little playlist to inspire you to get up to some spontaneous fun, make sure you head over to Priya’s blog post!
In our defense, both of us have already got our fair share of tattoos, as well as more than our fair share of “to-get” tattoo ideas. So while getting the actual tattoos was a spontaneous decision, the images we got weren’t. Story behind our latest brilliant decision done, let’s get into what they mean!
First up, we’ll tackle Priya’s – she got a super cute little hourglass to represent her grandma. I’m going to let her explain it herself . . .
Priya’s Tattoo & Meaning
My Tattoo & Meaning
The main meaning behind this is isolation, as weird as that sounds. A lot of the time, especially when I was younger, I felt very disconnected. Like I was interacting with the world from behind a plane of glass. I could see it, it could see me, but we weren’t quite occupying the same space. I couldn’t quite understand it the way everyone else seemed to.
It felt like I was always sitting from behind a window.
I’ve been wanting this tattoo for a few years now, but I could never decide on the exact way I wanted it to be portrayed. Essentially, I wanted a window, but I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to be really ornate, or something representative, or with a girl leaning out of it . . . Over the past few months, I’d kind of settled on this idea mainly because it ties in really well to my other tattoos and because it also has the look of a tombstone. Be still my gothic heart.
Alright kiddies, I hope you enjoyed this post – I definitely enjoyed the ‘lil day trip that inspired! Make sure you do head over to Priya’s blog to watch the video of the day and grab some tunes to inspire you to do some spontaneous fun yourself! What did you think of our tattoos? Have you ever got a random tattoo yourself? Let me know your thoughts down below!
