This tattoo, taken from A.A Milne’s Winnie the Pooh (illustrated by E.H Shepard) has a very poignant meaning to me. Winnie is trying to disguise himself as a little black cloud so as to procure some honey from the bees, but fails miserably. Christopher Robin, who is looking up from below, informs Pooh that he does not look like a little black cloud, but a bear with a balloon.
To me, this represents perspective, and the ability each of us has to construct our own reality and to be the masters of our own thoughts, actions and experiences. What others see of us should not matter- we are who we want to be.
This is my fourth tattoo, and my favourite.
