Vengeance Will Be Taken Sevenfold (Tattoo #6)

Hey there!!

If you've been following me for the past few months or so, you'll know that I have a serious obsession with tattoos. I got my first one last May, and now I'm up to #6. Don't worry, this will be the last one for a while (I think). A lot of my friends/ family think I'm absolutely insane for getting these tattoos in such a short amount of time. 

Yes, I did get all of them done one right after another. No, I don't regret any of them. 

All of my tattoos have some sort of meaning to me; I think that's all that really matters. I have gotten some strange looks/ responses to some of them (my 30stm glyphs, especially), but it doesn't bother me. It's kind of cool when people are genuinely interested in them. I take it as a compliment :) 

Also, quick fun fact: all of my tattoos are band or music related. If you haven't checked out my other tattoo posts, I'll link them below for ya!

Ok, on to the tattoo!!
I took this picture the day after I got it done (sorry about the redness...). 

Ok, so this one doesn't have too long of a story behind it. I absolutely love Avenged Sevenfold, so naturally, I thought I needed an a7x-related tattoo. I can't remember what video I was watching, but Matt was talking about how the band got its name. It comes from the verse "Vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold" (Gensis 4?). Instead of getting the entire quote, I liked the idea of just getting the word "vengeance." Plus, Zacky Vengeance is my favorite, so it all works out. 

Quick side note- I adore all the guys in the band, I just couldn't see getting a tattoo that says Shadows, Gates, or Christ, ya know (lol). 

As always, Jimmy did an amazing job, and I couldn't be happier!! I love the placement of this one- it's on my left shoulder/ collar bone area. I originally wanted it to be a bit bigger, but my tattoo artist scaled it down (and I'm so glad he did!). It's easy enough to cover up for my classroom observations, but I can show it off with an off-the-shoulder shirt. I can't remember the name of the font... I do know it's on the first page of the calligraphy section on dafont.com, though. 

This one only took about 15 minutes, but the feeling (I can't really call it pain) was more intense than any of my other pieces. Probably because it's over a bone and the skin on your collar bone is pretty thin. 

Well, that's pretty much it for now. Thanks so much for reading/ keeping up with my craziness ;)

I'll talk to you all again soon!

PS- I'm going to Florida this weekend for Fall Break (god knows I need a vacation from all this course work)! Check back soon for a Harry Potter/ Universal/ Orlando adventures blog :)
