So my tattoo is basically all healed, and I’m still so in love with it. This is more than just a tattoo to me, it’s what Paramore has taught me over the past 7 years that I’ve been a fan.
When I was younger, I was very lonely. I didn’t have many friends, and I had this paralyzing fear that I would never be good enough. When I heard Paramore for the first time, I felt understood. I felt like I wasn’t alone with my thoughts and feelings anymore. There were people that understood pain, and loneliness. They understood how it felt to have your heart broken.
Each Paramore album has gotten me through each phase of my life, and I’m forever grateful for the lyrics that have provided me so much solace. I would not be the same person I am today without them.
To me, this tattoo is a reminder that life isn’t always rainbows and unicorns, but if you can work through the pain that comes with living, you’ll experience the joy and knowledge that comes with healing. Thank you Paramore for showing me that. And a big thank you to Hayley Williams for writing this out for me. It means the world to me.
