The Japanese full body tattoo, or Horimono, can teach us a thing or two about living our lives in this crazy but beautiful world.
Here are 5 Lessons You Can Learn From A Japanese Horimono:
LESSON#1: PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
Getting a Horimono, or starting to work on one, is no easy task. Just like in life, it takes a lot of patience to get started and finish something, no matter how simple or grand that thing is.
LESSON#2: HARD WORK PAYS OFF
Working hard sounds redundant but it is an essential. Not only does a collector and an artist need it in completing a Horimono, we need to practice hard work through out our lives. Working hard gives us the confidence we need to go through our challenges and helps us enrich our gifts.
LESSON#3: NO PAIN, NO GAIN
One thing is certain in life: it will whoop you in the ass. So embrace the pain and fight to be a better individual through all of your challenges!
LESSON#4: BE YOURSELF
Some people tend to be judgemental. But this should not stop you from being who you truly want to be. Always carry yourself with dignity and pride.
LESSON#5: FAMILY FIRST
In Japanese tattooing, family is something special as a bond so deep, no words can express it. Just like our bond to those who we consider our family. It goes beyond words and you feel it within. No matter how hard life knocks you down, family will always be there to get you back on your feet.
