I never thought I was the type to get a Disney tattoo. It never even crossed my mind. Then one day at the tattoo shop, I was planning my new tattoo with my long-time friend and tattoo artist; And we were trying to decide how to make what I wanted work. All I knew was that I wanted a banner that said “Always Sleepy”. Finally after discussing many things (a pillow & blanket, a lantern, etc.), I texted his fiance — who is an amazing graphic designer/ artist, and asked her opinion. Her suggestion? A skunk. A perfect subtle reference to one of my favorite Disney films, Bambi.
I went for it. And now I have an amazing tattoo that isn’t too obviously “Disney”, but also a nostalgic tribute to my childhood. You can check out a photo of my tattoo under the cut, along with some other people who have tattoos inspired by children’s movies.
