The tattoo on my forearm was made on 15th October 2010. I got this tattoo because I've been suffering from
an eating disorder for a few years and Flyleaf is helping me get through it. A couple of years ago I had a
nervous breakdown and I almost committed suicide and then Flyleaf helped me. I think it was the only way to
prove to myself that God has a mission, a plan, a place for me. God created me for some reason and he wants
me to live. He loves me and will go through every pain with me and I know it all thanks to Flyleaf. This
tattoo has been inspired by amazing souls of Flyleaf. Thank you, Flyleaf! (I know I'm gonna die, but the
decision when is to be made by God. I fully trust him.)
The first picture is of "Memento Vivere" which is dedicated to both Flyleaf's "Memento Mori" Cd as well as their
new EP "Remember to Live". Flyleaf helped me realize how much I just need to stop and breathe. I can live through
anything, as long as I remember to live.
The second picture is of the first Flyleaf CD cover. Flyleaf is amazing and I went through a lot - between suicide
attempts, eating disorders, and self harm, flyleaf helped me realize how selfish I was.. and that I am on this earth
for a reason. I am here to live and I need to just believe.
I got this tattoo because it represents the changes I went through after I started listening to Flyleaf. I recall before
Flyleaf came around, I was very depressed. I felt I had no meaning in life. I felt I had no escape. After being turned on
to them by Brittany and Caleb, my life took a turn for the better. I became happy again, I felt like a new person. The
wings are not even on purpose. Hence "Broken Wings". They are a symbol of my life being forever changed and saved by
Christ and of course, Flyleaf, Brittany and Caleb. The tattoo is located on my back between my shoulders.
I got this when Brittany and Caleb were visiting me. Brittany and I both got crosses. The cross is just a symbol
of my faith. It's blue because its my favorite color. (Appears dark in the picture, because it was still fresh.)
The tattoo is located on my left arm.
||I had gotten my tattoo Sept 1st 2007. Flyleaf has done
amazing things for my life. I was on the verge of dying spiritually/physically. I fell in love with this band the moment I heard them. I
was on the verge of suicide. I had lost my job, my significant other, felt noone cared and I was about to be homeless. I had
wanted anything just to die. I realized the message behind their music was basically 'God can help me'. So now in adult life at nineteen
having listening to Flyleaf over these 3 years I had begun to think hard about my life. I got the tattoo as sort of a "thank you" or a
tribute to my hero Flyleaf! I have finally stopped thinking and this past week have accepted Jesus in my adult life. I went to church
this past Sunday. It was great. I have a Bible...and I actually have began reading it ....I just want to thank flyleaf for pushing me from
the edge and bringing me to Christ. <3
||On June 16, 2008 I got a Flyleaf tattoo with the word TRUTH in the middle of
it for several reasons; for the band, in memory of my Grandmother and for
what truth means to me. It's my way of thanking the band for giving me hope
and keeping me going when life is not good. Their music makes me feel better
about life and myself. When my Grandma passed away in front of me. I knew
that there was a God. Every time Lacey sings lyrics from the song Red Sam,
"You speak the truth and I hear it" that means a lot to me because those
words remind me that God is the truth.
|| I got this tat 6 months after coming out of rehab.
This band has changed my life. I have now been sober for one year and six months. I owe this band more than words can say.
The first time I saw them was at a Tower records signing thing here in the DFW. Everyone was real nice, but Lacey looked up at me and
said "can I hug you" I think I got a yes out but dont remember if it did come out. She hugged me and I carry it with me today. I'm 6'5"
260lbs and it felt like she lifted me off the ground. It was the softest, strongest hug I had ever had. I hope Lacey knows that God worked
though her that day, and that it helped me start a new life working Gods will.
|| Obviously it's based from the song
Fully Alive and when I heard the acoustic version it just blew me away. I felt like the song was about me personally.
I felt extremely connected to it and wanted it to be a part of me...literally. So when I decided to get it tattooed on
me I also thought it would be a good idea to have the words form a meaningful shape. I thought that an ANKH has a similar
meaning and so that is why I chose to form the lyrics in that shape.
|| I had struggled with life and
dealing with depression for a long, long time, pretty much ever since I can remember. Mindy was the one person who
kept me going each day because I could talk to her about almost everything. She always had that smile and really
kinda gave me a reason not to give up on life. As I was struggling with this, we both had found Flyleaf together
about two years ago. Mindy had given me concert tickets to them as a gift and after seeing them live for the first
time, I knew the band was something different. We started to listen to them more, go to more concerts, and we both
really loved them. The biggest reason why I love the band so much is that they opened our eyes to God. We started
believing and going to church and Mindy and I could always talk about our faith together. We grew so close together
just because of this one little thing. Then Mindy was killed in a car accident on October 29, 2007. It hurt me so
much. I thought that I could just give up on life at any time because she wasnt here anymore. But I had to think
about all the times we had together and how I was so thankful that I could help her find God before she died. I
know that she is safe and happy now and I want to keep living for her. It may be tough somedays, but I always
think that she is always with me now and so is God and I can do anything with that. I thank the band for giving me so much.
||As I struggle with medical pain issues everyday
the song/lyrics to Fully Alive reminds me that I want to overcome it everyday, live each day with a smile, not to get bogged down
in all the pain and to have hope for tomorrow! The lotus flower pairs nicely with Fully Alive because it starts as a small flower
down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and then slowly grows up towards the water's surface continually moving towards the light.
Once it comes to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom into a beautiful flower. I think that represents the
struggle through the pain with the beauty at the end. The artist I worked with made it all come together so nicely and every time I
think of my tattoo or see it I remember to be positive and hopeful and that is priceless to me!
||I personally believe flyleaf is best heard
live. I got this tattoo because of the live performance of "I'm So Sick" and decided to get "Let me live" because it is one of
the most gut-wrenching parts of the song. Their performances have had a profound effect on me and I will never forget all they
have done for me and all of their other fans.
||I got it because I've been through a rough time
for the past two years and Flyleaf's music was the only thing that made sense to me! I hope to get a portrait of Lacey on the upper
half of the same arm eventually too and if I do I'll send that along as well!
||As I'm on this walk with God I continue to struggle with different things that really get me down. Sometimes I fail to acknowledge that God is merciful and forgiving, and I feel like Ive taken things too far and now I can't turn back. When I put on flyleaf, it reminds me all over again how loving God is and how I truly am in a spiritual war with the thing unseen in this world. We can't be oblivious to it. Although often times Lacey dedicates this song to our troops, who I do support, I interpret this song as talking about spiritual warfare. It's one of my favorites by Flyleaf, and it has a very strong message in it.
||A couple years ago I began struggling with some
things and became depressed. My mom refused to let me go on medication for it, because she believed that it would only worsen the
problem. A friend let me borrow some CD's, and I began listening to flyleaf. Their music literally has changed my life. I'm no longer
depressed, because listening to them has brought me closer to God. This tattoo represents so much, way more than I could ever put into
words. It's my way of thanking them.
All 3 of my tattoos have something to do with Flyleaf. Before I heard of
Flyleaf I was very depressed and was doing a lot of drugs and was an
atheist. When I bought Flyleaf’s album, I felt that as if Lacey and the
rest of the band was telling me that everything is going to be ok. The one
that is written in Greek and wraps around my arm is a bible verse; Matthew
11:28-Come, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Below
the bible verse is a Japanese symbol for faith. On my other arm is
something that I designed myself. In the middle of the design is the
Flyleaf flame, which is soon to be colored. It’s truly amazing the impact
that Flyleaf has made on my life and I am forever grateful for that. I now
have a relationship with God and continue to stay clean and sober.
||The idea I came up with was to use my nickname of ten
years, CodeZero. I then wanted to put something memorable for my trip to Boston to meet and greet Flyleaf c/o Buzznet. So I borrowed the
wonderful logo from Flyleaf Fans and used a font that had wings and kickazz lettering on it.
||My tattoo is a Tibetan and it means 'broken'.
I got this tattoo because I felt broken a few years ago when I had panic disorder, I still have them and I felt like I was falling
to pieces until Evanescence and Flyleaf got me through my hard few years and this tattoo is For Flyleaf and I will getting another one too.
If you have a Flyleaf tattoo and would like to see it on this page, feel free to send it to me with the story behind it at my email with "Fan Tattoo" in the subject.
