I have one tattoo. It’s on my chest and it says “Esse Quam Videri”. It is the state motto of NC and means “To be rather than to appear”.
I hope to get one tattoo before I begin this journey. An armband of the mountains on my right bicep.
And then, if I make it to the ocean, I hope to get another tattoo on my left arm, with–yep you guessed it–an armband of waves.
This is totally ridiculous, I understand, but for some reason, I really want to permanently put down this dream in ink.
