I’ve been fascinated with moths for as long as I can remember. There’s something very mystical, dark and yet fragile over them. As a little girl, I used to just sit and watch them whenever they had ventured into our home, and I always thought of them as shy night butterflies.
When I went to Bucharest, I had so many tattoo ideas running through my mind, but for some reason, I always came back to the moth. And then I got curious!
As one does, I got on Google and searched for what the moth symbolizes, and no wonder I was so drawn to it.
There were two symbolisms that were very fitting for my personality and my journey.
The way that moths always seek out the light in the dark is a symbol of positivity, but also a sense of naive positivity because the brighter side that they are drawn to often hurts or kill them.
Growth and Transformation
The development into a full-grown moth is easily likened to personal growth as we look to shed our hindrances and strive towards a better state of living.
The more I looked into it, the more I fell in love with moths all over again. And suddenly I found myself with only one option for a tattoo that felt right.
And that’s the story of how I brought a moth home from Bucharest❤️
Thank you to Radical Ink for the beautiful souvenir!
