My tattoo is based off of the idea of the red string of fate, an Asian belief that two people are connected by a red string (tied together by the gods) and they are destined to develop a great friendship, fall in love, or help each other in some way. It’s a reminder to me that my relationships with people around me are going to continuously change, fall apart, evolve, and improve, and that’s okay - we are connected, nevertheless. Plus, I think it’s pretty darn cute.

I submitted the lyrics a few years ago and I just recently added the mechanical steampunk heart behind them - they seemed awfully lonely!
The lyrics are, of course, from my favorite band Motion City Soundtrack. I found the surrounding artwork while scouring the depths of the internet and fell in love with it immediately. After gaining permission from the young and talented artist Chris from Evolve tattoo in Farmington, MI, tattooed it for me.
