"Πουθενά δεν πάω, μ'ακούς
ή κανείς ή κι οι δύο μαζί, μ'ακούς"
Tattoos are purely personal, part of our ego, and I am constantly thinking of a new work of art to add on my skin. Each one represents a part of your life, a phase that you've been through and you never want to forget, a constant reminder of life lessons you've learned along the way.
Those are some lines of a -very popular, I guess- greek poem, called "The Monogram". Written by Odysseus Elytis back in 1971, it has always given me the goosebumps, ever since I was a teenager. For me, that is the meaning of true love; assuring the person you love, no matter if he or she is a lover, a friend, or a family member, that you will never let the fear of separation come between you two. No matter the distance, no matter the years, no matter even God.
It's greek, it features my own handwriting, it's perfectly imperfect, it's me.
