My Tattoo!!!!

This has been a long time coming. Before our travels many an idea ran through my head like where do I get my tattoo, leg, arm, back? What country do I get it in? And, what would be my most important choice, what design?

The answers are as follows; Left leg, New Zealnd, and a Compass/ Nautical star.

I draw a very basic design of the star (back in Airley beach actually), and the reason why I chose it was because it was the best way I could represent my travels with Re. The reason why I chose to gte it done in New Zealand was purely for the fact that it is our last destination.

Before I describe the final 'copy' of my tattoo I must first explain something else; Re and I have had a phenomenal time for the past three months and everything we have wanted to do we have done, apart from one thing in New Zealand. What Re and I most wanted to do was watch a traditional Maori performance. However due to some bad luck we were unable to see any. So after about sulking over this I came up with a silver lining of sorts. To give my tattoo some character I asked Chalky the tattooist to add some Maori influences into it. Needless to say he greatfully obliged and it looks awesome, even if I do say so myself!
