I got this quote because of the idea behind it. Steve Job’s had said “…Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice…” I’ve always struggled with other people’s opinions by letting them affect me. It’s a reminder to me to rise above it and think for myself.
This is my fifth tattoo and it was done by Tony at Greg’s Tattooing in Wheeling, West Virginia. It’s a quote from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (S05E22), a show that has inspired me since I was a kid and helped me through the good and bad times in my life. Buffy said this to her sister before she saved the world and died, in the hopes that her sister would be able to keep living even through her death just months after their mother died. It’s a reminder to always be strong, to always live, even when it feels like the world is ending.
