Here is an inspirational tattoo we did for El in our tattoo shop in Robinsons Galleria, Ortigas.
?VII?VIII: “FALL SEVEN TIMES, STAND UP EIGHT” –
it is about the ‘never say die’ attitude. It means getting back up every time you get knocked down, fall down, or otherwise end up feeling down. Even if you start being a loser and wasted, you have to get back up stronger and wiser.
This also infers that the only way you can lose is to not get back up. If you go down and stay there, that is the only path to a sure defeat. While you are still able to get back up, there is still hope, no matter how slim it might seem.
Stand up no matter what. Stand up over and over and over again. Until you win. Until the haters and struggles gets tired of swinging, or loses interest and wanders off. YOU DON’T HAVE TO STOP UNTIL YOU HAVE WHAT YOU SET OUT TO ACHIEVE. ????
