Im just curious about your rosemary tattoo, would you be willing to share the significance of it to you? It is very beautiful x

thank you! the designw as taking from an old herb compendium, there was a really nice thyme and lemon grass in there too :)

Rosemary as a herb is significant to me as its been a somewhat constant in my life - my number one choice for cooking, and something that grows in suburbia enough to be able to steal a few sprigs here and there from peoples gardens.

It reminds me of making meals with loved ones, and i like that as a plant it is something you can pick that wont wilt and die - that it dries out and takes on another form and use. Picking flowers is so interesting in that it’s usually a knowing act of destruction - that once picked they fade, and that picking them is an almost selfish act of taking ownership over something even though you know that doing so is destructive.

i like that herbs survive and stay with you

thank you for your question!
