This phrasing and perspective really speaks to me. While I only have four tattoos (but will most likely have more before too long), they certainly do have a part of my story. Each of them is from a very distinct chapter of my life that represents a period of change or importance to me and my life. They are my story. They reveal certain truths about me and remind me of both joyful and challenging parts of my life.
I love my tats. Even the ones that I've eventually covered over with something else, I know that they are still there and they represent something.
They are my physical memoir.
