Getting a tattoo has always been something I have thought about doing. However, I never knew what I would actually get knowing that it would be written on me for the rest of my life. With this being said, I would want it to be something meaningful to me. This is why I chose the phrase “c’est la vie” which translates to “that’s life” for this project. I often find my friends and I saying this phrase to each other after something didn’t turn out the way we thought it would. This is a constant reminder to me that nobody is perfect and life is too short to waste time on the small things in life. I like to think that I am an optimistic person and this phrase helps me pursue that and look on the bright side of everything. This is why I chose to place the tattoo on the back of my arm because I wanted it to be in a place that other people could see it also; This would make them able to read the message and hopefully interpret it the same way as I do. I chose a cursive font because it represent a flow of connectivity and is personal and meaningful. Cursive fonts are also beautiful and soft and I think that it was the perfect style to convey for my message.
