my tattoo and the taylor swift inspiration behind it. I know they’re a little different, but I like to consider it a tribute rather than a replica.
I chose this heart because it’s more inconspicuous than some of the ‘fearless’, ‘speak now’, and ‘red’ tattoos, but also because it was Taylor’s first album that made me a fan all the way back in 2006. And that album symbolised a long journey for me. It came out when I was 13, and I’ve been a fan ever since, and I guess this was a small way to pay homage to how much Taylor has helped me through my life since then. It might sound cheesy, but I’m not sure if I’d still be here without her. She was there through my troubles with Bullying, Bulimia, Self Harm, Depression, Losing People, Heartbreak and so much more. And this is a small way for me to say thank you.
