Granite City Girls Ink | 'My Way' Tattoo



In my opinion body art is the highest form of self expression. In life there are so few things you get to say are forever, that you get to take with you when all is said and done and in many ways tattoos are life's most poetic form of personal expression and dare I say it art in general. So really it's no surprise that with almost every milestone, memory or little life moment I generally want to keep for the rest of my life my first instinct is to etch it permanently on my body, which is what brings me nicely to the subject of this post, my most recent tattoo in memory of my granda who passed away earlier this year. At first glance the tattoo just makes you think I'm quite a brash person, stomping through life getting my own way, and while yes there may be a little truth to that (ahem) it also means so much more.

When I think of my granda I think of a trailblazer of a man who did things the way he wanted to do them, in his time and though he was quite a quiet man he spoke his mind when it counted and didn't shy away from potentially awkward moments, conversations or dull down his opinions and that's a quality I really admire and hope I portray throughout my own life a because there really isn't anything more important than being yourself and doing things your way no matter what other people think of you.

So really in addition to the kick ass Frank Sinatra song which reminds me of him this new tattoo which reads 'My Way' is really an etched and permanent memory and piece of advice from my granda that I will now physically and mentally carry with me for the rest of my life, and despite the upturned noses I can see behind some of those screens out there and shouts of 'but why don't you just remember him in your memories and photographs,' let me just say that I'm doing it my way!

If you have any questions about tattoos, the pain, process or where I go in Aberdeen to have mine let me know in the comments below, come Tweet your questions on Twitter or if you'd like to keep up with Granite City Girl and any upcoming inklings come find me on Bloglovin.

Until next time folks, I'm going to continue doing it 'my way'

  1. I think tattoos are so beautiful. Don't even want to understand people who hate them!
    I agree that sometimes you just see a thing and want it to be with you forever, whether it's a quote, reminder of something significant or a little drawing. In my opinion, when you get a tattoo you have to really think if it means to you a lot as otherwise one day you will end up removing it.
    My list of tattoos I want to get seems to be growing every month, hehe, just need to wait until I'm a little bit older and don't need a permission from my parents. But now black pen and diy temporary tattoos videos on YouTube are my saviours :) x

    1. Thank you for the comment. I was exactly the same when I was too young to get a tattoo yet, my list was always growing but my advice would be to think long and hard, my general rule when getting a tattoo is to wait at least 2 months before booking anything in and decide on whether I really do want it, but it sounds like for the moment at least you have a good alternative haha!
