Eating Disorder Recovery "Nourish"

Eating Disorder Recovery

I created this tattoo after finally overcoming 3 years of self hatred. I struggled with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating and thought I would never get through my sickness. Something clicked and my eating disorder is finally out of my life for good, and I got this tattoo to remind me of the hardest fight in my life, the fight to treat my body right and to feed myself properly. The heart-like symbol is the National Eating Disorder Association's symbol for recovery, and the symbol's color is done in periwinkle which also stands for recovery.
