So I've had quite a few people ask me about what my tattoo is (for those who have never played a Legend of Zelda game in their lives), what the quote says, and what it all means to me.
First off it's Majora's Mask, a game that's part of the LoZ franchise. It's my favorite game of all of them, and I've played every one up to date.
I love the game play, the story, the difficulty, the sure innocence of it. Second the scroll says "the flow of time is always cruel" (see the top right pic for ref of where it originated from). Third, the reason I picked this quote out of all of them (the rest of the quote will go with the other LoZ tattoos I add to the arm) was because it holds dearest to me. For me the flow of time is cruel..so many things change with time, whether it be good or bad. We age, we change physically and mentally. And eventually with age and time comes memory loss, but just like the quote we still somehow hold onto the memories of our younger days, our innocence. (I first hand watched my great-grandparents and grandparents suffer from Alzheimer's disease) and for me I know one day I'll become a victim to the disease that'll make me forget my husband, my children, my friends but in the end I'll have the memories of my childhood, the memories of playing LoZ with my grandparents, reading the lore, constantly sketching pictures of the characters, all of it. Some of my best memories as a child had something to do with LoZ.
So this tattoo for me will be a constant reminder to never forget my youth, the innocence, the dedication, the love, the hope I held in my heart as a young child who really loved this video game franchise and who still loves it and have even passed that love down to my own children.
I hope y'all enjoy it cause I sure do and I can't wait to add more to my arm and complete it. #legendofzelda#majorasmask#theflowoftimeisalwayscruel#tattoo#tattoos#tattooedmom#girlswithtattoos#link#zelda#triforce#dekuflower#tatl#tael#dekukid#ocarinaoftime
