Teenagers are at a pivotal point in their lives, making decisions that will determine their paths in life and, as a whole, form the next generation of thinkers, and workers.  It’s imperative we empower young people with the ability to think freely and broadly from many perspectives, analyzing the world from many different angles and points of view. Teenagers are doing a lot of inward looking as they mature into adolescents, but also need to do a lot of looking outward to see how the world works and how they can best contribute as agents of positive change.  This clever tattoo will remind teens that there’s never just one way to think about or do anything, empowering them to think creatively and thoughtfully at themselves and the world.   


Triohanga | 0.25 x 3.8 inches | $23
