Shooting Stars

Gisele Bundchen is one of my favourite models. I love her natural beauty and bubbly personality. But today I wanted to share a quote from an interview she gave about the meaning behind her tiny star tattoo, which I thought was really cute.

"It's a shooting star, for my grandmother. She died when I was young. When I first moved to New York, there were no stars in the sky, so to remind me of her I drew one on my wrist and kept it there for a month, and then had someone draw it in"

Do you have any tattoos and what's the meaning behind them?

I have a small 'G' on my wrist- the same place as her's. It's my dad's initial. I lost him when I was 9 years old. If you don't know what it is, it just looks like a small pattern. It means a lot to me as its a reminder that he is still with me everyday! X

Oh, it is so wonderful that a part of him is always with you. Thank you for sharing that! xo

This is cute! I don't have tatoos and I don't know if I'll ever have one, but I think I won't do it if there is no such meaning behind it, like the one Gisele has.

p.s. this summer I saw a girl with a birds tattoo on her shoulder, something like this, but smaller version:

oh that was soooo beautiful!
