Getting my first tattoo sleeve. It started with me wanting to mark the first anniversary of my sobriety and has turned into an ongoing journey in self-discovery. The first step was to figure out what I wanted. Since this is a "rebirth" of sorts, I thought that I'd dig into my Filipino roots (my mother is a Pilipina). So then I started the search for imagery. Side note: I'm also learning Tagalog. I've known a little, but working on being able to speak it fluently.
