Baybayin- The Filipino/ Tagalog writing system pre-Spanish colonization.
I want water or fire tattooed on me!
Water because water is free flowing. If a flowing river encounters a boulder in it’s path, the water simply flows around this obstacle. Water is shapeless and it can take the shape of anything which surrounds it. Water can also be powerful like a wave, crash and overwhelm.
Fire because fire is the greatest human discovery ever. Fire can bring warmth and life, but it can also bring death and destruction. Fire also represents your passion and desire for something. For example, “I have this fire, and this burning desire to compete and win the gold.”
As you can see, I’ve put some thought into this, I don’t want a dumb tattoo I’ll regret later haha.
