DIY: A heart of shells

I’ve been working on this DIY for a loooong time! I came up with this idea when I was walking on the beach and saw all the beautiful shells that came out of the sea. I started collecting some shells and soon enough this Do It Yourself project came to my mind. I hope you like it!

What you need:
A bunch of shells
Gluegun and gluesticks
Canvas board
Newspaper (or something else big you can cut a heart out of)


Wash off the sand from your shells and lay them down like this to let them dry



Place shells on the line you made. I put small ones on the bottom and the top curves, filled it in with bigger ones.


After the first time this is how far I got..


Second time.. Not enough shells ­čÖü



Third time: DONE!


After my first tattoo I was sure it wasn’t going to be my last one. I’ve been looking for some inspiration on what to get next and where. It does have to have a true meaning to it. Here are some pics I found the last couple of months that I really like. Some I don’t even have to think about getting, but I just really like how they look. // Na mijn eerste tattoo wist ik meteen dat het niet mijn laatste zou zijn. Ik heb wat rondgekeken om te kijken wat mijn volgende zal worden en waar. Het moet wel echt een betekenis hebben. Hier zijn wat foto’s die ik de afgelopen maanden heb gevonden en die ik heel mooi vind. Over sommigen hoef ik niet eens na te denken of ik ze wel of niet moet nemen, maar dan vind ik ze erg gewoon heel mooi uit zien.
