Back in July I got my first tattoo at a shop called ‘Prick’ at Old Street, London. I took this photo outside my hotel in Kings Cross, as my sister and I was locked out. I have always wanted a tattoo and right before leaving for my European holiday in early July, I had decided to get the word “imagination” in Indonesian (imajinasi) on the side of my foot once I got back to Sydney. However I could not get this excitement out of my head throughout the trip, and on a complete whim i googled some tattoo places in London the night before I got the tattoo. ‘Prick’ was the only place I could find that had both a good reputation and accepted walk in customers. The next day I searched for the place with my sister and upon consultation was dissapointed to find out that the place on my foot I initially wanted to get the tattoo at was highly not recommended due to the lining of the skin. Having fallen in love with the idea of getting a tattoo in London I was still determined to leave the shop with ink and then with suggestion decided to put it on top of my foot. 
While at first I wasn’t too fond of its placing it has truly grown on me. I particularly wanted the word to be facing me because the tattoo was really for me to look at and get inspired from. This turned out to work really well as I love how it looks from another person’s point of view (makes the word look a bit more cultural and fancy or something). 
I won’t get into the whole “what-it-means-for-me” thing, frankly because it’d take too long and I can’t be bothered, but I wanted to put my experience in words so as time goes by and my memory of this fades, I will be reminded of the little details of this experience such as going home early and getting stuck outside the hotel with my sister, frantically walking around Kings Cross trying to find a store that sold glad-wrap (surprisingly a bit difficult), the special cream and tape and of course the feeling of getting tattood on the foot. For me it felt like getting a paper cut, only that feeling doesn’t last a milisecond but rather minutes at a time.
I remember as I was getting inked that I said to myself I would never get another tattoo again. However the moment you lay eyes on your tattoo and the pain starts to lessen, you know thats not true.

Dear Photograph,I awoke to the sound of an airplane hitting the tower. As we looked up and stared in utter disbelief at the nightmare unfolding in front of us, all I could think was “please, let this be a bad dream”. How I wish it had been…Mark Yokoyama

Beating - Noah and the Whale

Don’t build the castle
At your centre
Oh the heart can’t love
What it can’t remember
Be willing to be hurt
Oh be willing to be bruised
'Cos a heart that doesn't love
Is a heart that isn’t used

Oh turn your love to life
Let your love shine through
In everything you do
Let your love shine through

Oh I thought I felt my heart beating
Well I thought I’d never know that feeling
Oh I thought I felt my heart beating
Well I thought I’d never know that feeling

Well my heart was like a cave
Now light shines in it
Oh to fall in love is brave
Oh my heart was like a stone
That barely moved
Oh my heart was like a magnet
Oh for hearts like yours

Oh turn your love to life
Let your love shine through
In everything you do
Let your love shine through

—-

Beautiful words.
