Pictures of my tattoo

So I had a request for pictures of my tattoo. Although I got it in December 2008, I have never actually taken a picture of it. This is partially because I didn't tell my parents about it until a year later. But anyway, I took pictures of it today (with the help of my mother). It's on my left shoulder blade. I put it there because it is right behind my heart <3
Here they are!

Pretty pretty! This is the symbol for eating disorder recovery, also the symbol for the National Eating Disorders Association. The red represents anorexia and the purple represents bulimia. For any of you who have watch the Thin documentary, this is the tattoo that the girls got. This tattoo reminds me every day that I don't want to go back to my ED. I hated life when I was in my disorder. I wanted to die all the time. So no more of that!

Other than these lovely pictures, I've been pretty un-busy. Yesterday I had physical therapy (for my Achilles tendonitis, which I have had since I was 16, due to dance). I went to the gym and swam, which was HARD. I swam for about 45 minutes and did 1500 yards. I used to do 6000 yards in a practices, so that's pretty lame. But I do recognize that I haven't swam in a year and I'm severely out of shape. So I think I did a great job! I am incredibly sore today though. Swimming is a great arm workout. And it's great for lung capacity.

Today I am going to see the new Pirates movie with my best friend, and then we are going out tonight for my birthday! We are planning to go to a club/bar and get a few drinks, and then go back to her house and have a sleepover. Fun stuff! I can't wait!

Well, that's all for now. See ya!


  1. love it <3 i want that tattoo someday too :)

    and yayy for the swimming!! sounds like fun, glad your getting back into it. and have fun tonight!!


  2. Thanks for posting pictures, I actually like the tattoo very much. I'm glad you're proud of recovering and you don't want to go back, maybe getting a tattoo will push me further towards a positve direction, too. At least that's what I'm hoping for.

    Loads of love,
