If you have come across my tumblr, I welcome you. Here you shall find honesty, humour, and a little bit of crazy. Do not be afraid, the voices can sense it. Do not judge for I shall not judge you. Just enjoy your stay and pass on the insanity, one wave at a time.
So I have always been extremely embarrassed that my left ear is deaf. I tried to hide it in every way possible. It made me feel broken and useless, especially listening and playing music. My original idea was to put music notes behind my ear, but for some reason the idea just didn’t feel quite right considering I couldn’t hear said music. I came up with the mute symbol idea because lately I have learned to embrace my deafness. I tend to joke around that my left ear is like my mute button when I want to ignore someone. Now I am no longer ashamed and find strength in the humor of my tattoo.
That is pretty great.
My best friend is deaf in her right ear and she has this behind her ear too!
I don’t know you but I’m so happy to see you accept this part of yourself because there’s nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of ;)
