As kids grow up they start to decide what they want to do when they’re older. This can include having a dream job, having a car, or something completely out of the ordinary. Ever since Maya Houston was a child, she has been wanting a tattoo. Flash forward many years later, and that dream becomes a reality. She says that, “Most of my family members have at least one, and for as long as I can remember I planned on getting my first one when I was old enough.” One of Maya’s most personal tattoos is dedicated to her grandfather after he passed in 2014. The tattoo resembles a heart beat, which she said was “a cute add on to the day that he passed.” Some of her other designs include a heart, a cross, and birds. All of these designs are on her left arm, and she says that they are just “small things I though were cute.” Compared to her other designs, she says that this was holds a lot of meaning and will always keep her grandfather by her side. As a senior at Sunlake, Maya hopes to add many new tattoos as the years go on and more memories are made.
