I had it made in Thailand, it is a bamboo tattoo. The meaning for me is that I have to stop worrying about everything. I bought a ticket to Thailand three days before the trip and it also represents my backpacking trip which I had to do when my boyfriend left me.
I got my first tattoo in the end of my exchange year in Mexico. Vive el presente means live for today in Spanish, because that is what the best and hardest year of my life taught me.
