“A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.”
My name is Charlotte a.k.a Lotska. I’ve been a Star Wars fan since, well, forever. My brother and father brought me up in the most nerdalicious ways possible, thankfully! I wouldn’t be as awesome as I am today if it weren’t for their influence.
I had been going through a particularly difficult time in my final year at University, suffering from anxiety, exhaustion and acute stress. I was concerned about my mental health and after coming to terms with several issues, I decided to stop waiting for things to change and be more proactive. I got this tattoo as a reminder of my strength and abilities. To give me the push I need on those days when I feel like giving up. It has become a personal mantra.
I had my tattooist (Mick Miller at Headingley Tattoo Studio) draw it up using the Star Wars font, and had it tattooed in reverse on the left side of my chest. I had it in reverse because it is for me, and me only. When I look in the mirror, I can read it perfectly – but others struggle to read it in reverse and it has become a pretty good conversation starter.
