1st tattoo by ahopefulregret 1st tattoo by ahopefulregret
1 hour after.

Picture by - Kelsey
Design - Me
Shoulder - mine
Lyrics - 8 Full Hours of Sleep by Against Me!
(Hear the song, read the lyrics)

There's about a million reasons why I got this tattoo. That song, and that line in particular really hit me when I first heard it. I've wanted the words on me for a long time. They're literally and metaphorically true, and they keep me optimistic when I'm losing perspective. I got this on Valentine's day 2008. Sure beats the hell out of chocolate and flowers.

Thanks a bunch to Chris Hall at Sector Five. He beats the hell out of the other tattoo artists around here.

****Note: Please don't get this exact design as a tat! It's my design and it's personal to me. Please respect that!*****

And stop asking the font, I answered this three times now.

Your tattoo is gorgeous, I actually adore it. Also, the description of why you got it is also beautiful.
I am getting my first tattoo next week and I am getting it in exactly the same place as you have. I was just wondering, did it hurt much?
I am a tiny bit nervous about getting it so anything you could advise me would be great.

Thank you c:

You should put the info about the font in the description so people stop asking. So what font is it?

I love the tat. It's a calming peaceful grounding sentiment. And I love how you presented it. :)

And thanks, now I am hooked on Against Me! and after spending hours scouring YouTube to listen, I'm also now hooked on Tegan and Sara. :laughing:

Nice Tatt, fabulous lighting, good message and a good band. The only thing I would is change the link to reflect a current way to hear it, perhaps a youtube link;)

Already done. And it was MORE complicated than some of the music I've found.. But also far easier than some of the random stuff I have. Good song though.

beautiful, I want to get a sunrise tattooed on me, for pretty much the same reason you have these lyrics.
the sunrise always makes me appreciate a new day and the fresh start.
