Hey guys! Happy FRIDAY! Do the money dance if you got paid today! 

Now that I’m posting on a daily basis for the time being, I feel so much closer to you guys. Well, almost. I just ask that you leave me some love in the comments, please! I want to get to know you too, ya know! It’s like going on a date and only one person talks the WHOLE time and never shuts up. Like how annoying is that bitch? Don’t make me be that person! 😦

Anyways, in case you didn’t know, last week I got another tattoo. It’s on my left leg near my ankle and it’s the Sailor Venus symbol. You know, when she transforms. (VENUS SUTAHH POWAA MAKE UP!) I made a vlog about it on my Youtube channel so if you haven’t seen it, go check it out! 

I then realized that I never fully addressed why I got this or what it means to me, which is kinda important, right? I mean, this symbol will be on my leg FOREVER so it’s gotta mean something special.

All the sailor senshi’s powers are inspired from Roman mythology. So yes, it’s not just a coincidence that she’s Sailor Venus, the soldier of Love and Beauty, and that there’s Venus, the Roman goddess of Love and Beauty. I’ve always loved the concept of love and beauty. Love is unconditional and everyone has the ability to do it. With beauty, everyone is beautiful whether you realize it or not. I addressed this in yesterday’s post, but just because you may not fit what society’s concept of “beauty” is, doesn’t mean you’re not beautiful. There’s all kinds of beauty, whether it’s physical or conceptual. You can have a beautiful personality, a beautiful voice, a beautiful faith, etc. Both love and beauty is intangible and that’s what’s amazing about it. You can buy all the cosmetics in the world, but at the end of the day, it’s how you view yourself. That’s what makes you beautiful.

*Give yourself bonus points if you sang that last line. Where are all my One Direction fans at?*

In addition, I also just love Sailor Venus (Minako) as a character. She can be a spaz, but she has a strong sense of justice. She’s confident, out-spoken, and she cares deeply for her friends. Fun fact: she’s such a popular character that Naoko Takeuchi (creator of the Sailor Moon series) gave her her own manga series! 

I got this tattoo because I love what she stands for. It’s a reminder to myself that no matter how bad I feel about my body sometimes, I am beautiful no matter what anyone says. I have the power to change my negative views about my body into positive ones. It’s also a reminder to channel my inner Sailor Venus when times get tough. 

As for why I got it on my leg… um, there’s no particular reason for that. I originally wanted it on the inside of my arm, but I ultimately decided it would look nicer on my leg. 

So yeah, that’s it! This is why I’m a motherfcking sailor scout. Yeea. 

Question of the Day: Who’s your favorite sailor senshi? 🙂

  1. haha I never really thought of it… I guess … hmmm … man I haven’t watch Sailor Moon since I was in Hong Kong. I think it would be either Mars or Jupiter. Back when I was a youngin’ I was such a dude 😛
