When I was around 10 years old maybe a little older. My father took me fishing at one of his good buddy’s farm ponds. We just spent the whole day there hoping to bring home some fish to grill for dinner. Growing up I only saw him on the weekends because of his work schedule during the week, so it was nice to get to have the day with him doing something we both love. So we put our lines out in the water ready to catch some keepers. Well, some time passed then one of us caught a really nice sized blue gill. We put it on the stringer and got back to fishing. Some more time passed with no luck! So then we decided to get our stuff and go to the other side of the pond. I go for the stringer and the only thing left of our bluegill was its head! Darn snapping turtle got to it. Oh, I was so mad but I thought whatever we’ll catch more. We start fishing again and I caught a 7-8lb catfish and dad caught a few nice sized bass. Well that’s about all we had and it was time to head home. Dad grabbed the stringer and as he was walking he noticed a plastic bag in the pond. Being a good guy he tried to get it out and as he was trying he lost hold of the stringer. All the fish got away. I was so mad, I started crying. I remember getting in the truck and heading home and as I’m pouting I hear my dad start laughing. I was like this man is crazy there isn’t anything funny about this! All he said was, “Sometimes you just have to laugh it off!”. And we started talking about the day and he got me to laughing about it because he is absolutely right! And I believe that what they say is true a bad day of fishing beats a good day of anything else because I actually learned a lot that day without even realizing it. =)
I got these lyrics from Hello Cold World because they are like my life motto. Things don’t always go as expected but I always try like hell to make the best of everything. I didn’t ask for parents who drink but I’m making the most of it by being a better person and learning from them. The day I got this I had tickets to an Indians game, and we couldn’t find a parking spot anywhere in Cleveland. So we decided screw it lets just go get that tattoo I’ve always talked about!
I got this on my left thigh about 3 weeks ago. It’s my first tattoo and I couldn’t be happier. To me, it represents my adoration for the band’s meaningful lyrics & inspiring members, and my overcoming the difficulties of Army basic training. I wanted the butterfly because it’s not an obvious Paramore tattoo. To most people that see it, it’ll just be a simple butterfly. But to those who know Paramore, they’ll recognize why I wanted to remember them and think about them every day for the rest of my life.
The guy that did it changed some of the original (like reversing the colors of the stripe on the body) so it would last longer and look “more like a tattoo.”
