What's the story behind this tattoo / piercing? when i was a little girl, my mom read a book to me about a blue hippo who fell in love with a princess. He longed to be close to her so a magician gave him his wish, turned him into a blue faience hippo to be a toy for her. But he could see she was still lonely so when she knocked him off the balcony and he broke, he then asked the magician to simply make the princess happy. In return for his selflessness, the magician turned the hippo into a baby, the princess's baby. Now he would be loved by her forever and she would be happy. I loved the story so much, that I designed this tattoo based on the story to forever remind me to be selfless.
