Getting inked sounds like a scary thing to do but it can also feel liberating as a form of self-expression. You just have to be really sure what kind of tattoo you want to have! It’s going to stick with you for life so better make it a meaningful one. For these celebs, their tattoos have different stories to tell. Check out some of them:

Nadine Lustre

In her Monster RX93.1 interview, Nadine reveals that the writing on her arm is actually her Japanese name which translates to Nozomi Komiya. Nozomi means “hope” while Komiya, Nadine claims, could have been her real family name. She found out from relatives that her great great grandfather was a Japanese migrant with the surname Komiya. He moved to the Philippines and married a Filipina. Instead of using Komiya, he decided to adopt his business partner’s last name which was Lustre. Wow, so that pretty much explains why Nadine is such a Japanese culture fan!

That’s just one of Nadine’s many tattoos. She also has a vine, crescent moon, sparkle emoji, rose, heart, “mon cheri”, “ooh la la”, “Ego Omnia”, and Tadhana lyrics “Nakayapak at nahihiwagaan” tatts! The latter is in honor of her late bro since it was his favorite song. Awww! For her next tattoo, Nadine plans to get a butterfly design because, to her, it means reincarnation.

Leila Alcasid

Fun fact: Her mom, beauty queen and former actress Michelle van Eimeren, drew the Japanese anemone tattoo for her! That’s a really sweet gesture.

Sue Ramirez

Sue has the evil eye tattoo on the back of her arm so she feels protected, and also because people often tease her for having big eyes (kaya nagdagdag pa raw siya. Own it, girll!)

In a Magandang Buhay interview, she also says it also pays tribute to her late father’s blue eyes.

She also has the words "dance, try, sail, rise" tattooed on her arm and there's a funny story behind it! Sue says she tends to forget the lyrics to "While We Are Young," one of the featured songs in her movie Ang Babaeng Allergic Sa WiFi.

She wrote the song’s keywords in time for a mall show and ended up liking them so she got a tattooed version!

Aside from these, Sue has sunflower and rainbow streak tattoos as well!

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
