There are a few things in life that people tend to do when they complete something meaningful in their lives. I haven’t done anything really stereotypical, other then travelling after graduation – until yesterday. If you follow me on Instagram/Twitter, you may have noticed that I finally got my “running tattoo”. It wasn’t my first tattoo, but my first running-related one. It seems to be a tradition with some to get a tattoo when they accomplish things like running a marathon, finishing an Ironman – or the ultimate dream for many up and coming athletes – making the Olympics. Since I ran a marathon, I figured it was time.
I had my tattoo done at Barnstormers, which is located in the Glebe. One of the co-owners (Glen), went to high school with P – which is why I got a gift card from P for Christmas. The studio is really great – you can tell that they really like their career and operating their own business. I had my tattoo done by Nate, who is an apprentice – and used to be a teacher!
Anyways – to the tattoo:
I have had the silhouette design idea for quite some time. I found an image I liked and had it saved on my computer. Then I just added the 42.2 (I’m Canadian and all). It is simple – but meaningful. I wish I had the guts to get one of the big, colourful tattoos, but nope 🙁
