These are pictures submitted by our followers. i decided to dedicate a section to tattoos because i know personally they will give me strength to keep pushing forward, so i figured the must do the same for others.
my recovery tattoo. The NEDA symbol, and “no one heals without a struggle.” This was the main quote that helped me through treatment
peacock feather (symbol of vanity) with the neda symbol as the eye
This is my first tattoo, and my last. There is a story behind the simplicity of it. After being released from the hospital last year, I was struggling between recovery and staying sick. I kept telling my self how could I ever recover, If all I know is what I am used to. And that was my eating disorder. I had a friend tell me I could over come and that everyone has the chance that you just have to try, that you can evolve into a better person no matter how complicated it seems and is. And that I did.. Although I still struggle somedays, this tattoo is a permanent reminder that its never to late to give recovery a chance and that its not impossible. Life is better without E.d
Kia Kaha means Stay Strong in Maori.
Every time I write your tie up my shoes etc etc I see it and it reminds me to Stay Strong and that I will get past my difficulties
I wanted to share my recovery tattoo! A Native American war bonnet with bison horns, because only the strongest warriors were honored with those horns.
This tattoo means “one life” in gaelic. It reminds me that I only have only life to live and I don’t want to spend it in a living hell that I am doing to myself. I want to be happy and love my life. Stay strong, everyone.
