This is my first tattoo. It’s an Indian Lacrosse stick. I decided on this tattoo for many different reasons. I’ve played the sport since I was 10 years old, but its much more than that. This lacrosse stick represents the people I’ve grown up with. They haven’t been just team mates. They’ve been my family. I’ve been with these girls through everything. The loss of friends and family members. Through the times of sorrow and times of joy. Just about everything. Because of this sport I met the people that have shaped me into the person I am today, and I want the reminder always that who I am now is who I always want to be. To remember the people who mean the most to me now, and hopefully will mean just as much in the future.
