S/o to the for laying its rays on my physique in a way no other light or photoshop could do.lol
Legit, how incredibly beautiful is this earth we’re so #blessed to live on?!
Real talk tho, I didn’t appreciate the beauty as much as I am now...this solely was for content gains.
Before you start yellin out shallow lol if it weren’t for the content I put here on ig since day one, I never would’ve gotten the opportunity to Fly to Canada and live in that moment.
Nor would I be able to create a product that is genuine to me, and now my business. All out of a #shimmyshake that I put out on my story a year ago..and continued to do daily after that.
Now, being able to take my business that is my #shimmyshakebootybands and joining forces the @the_cartelle app,to offer my training programs through content that is next level, I could NEVER do alone.
It’s the TINY things for me that feel like MAJOR wins, and the fact that my Booty bands ARE a major part of my “Build Your Foundation” program through this app...I’m DONE. (details to be announced!) #shimmyshakebootybands RE-STOCK THIS MON 8/20!
I MAYBE opening a pre order-list TOMORROWThat way shipping labels are printed and ready...your orders will be the FIRST shipment out, AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVE!
COMMENT DOWN BELOW if you’re LIT for this idea?! shouldiornah?
The first tattoo I got was about a year and a half after I joined the Marine Corps in 2009. I was a young Lance Corporal excited about being a Marine finally and had some tax rebate money burning a hole in my pocket. I decided on an old school nautical version of the eagle globe and anchor, and figured the wings may as well reach from shoulder to shoulder making everything else that much bigger.
Even my tattoo artist asked me a few times if I was sure that I wanted a tattoo that large for my first time getting inked. This was probably one of my more ego driven answers when I unflinchingly said of course I want my first tattoo that big, and to have that much detail on the sternum. ☆
At that time I also began to get more curious about my roots so if you notice on the globe showing the Western Hemisphere, I added a dot over my birth country of Colombia. I knew this first tattoo was going to be representative of my roots, and not just the Marines but also Bogota Colombia make that representation whole.
It wouldn’t be a while until I revisited Bogota but this first tattoo is also one of my proudest. Whenever I’m in public, the “Semper Fidelis” part of the emblem usually shows through. I joke that it’s my calling card to other Marines but it has several times over led me to find fellow Marines and veterans in a crowd. ☆
That outward symbol has also been the reason some have made assumptions about me because of an unknown latin phrase showing through the open collar of my polo or dress shirt. I always have the option to wear an undershirt and hide the tattoo as some advise me to, but I rarely wore an undershirt while in uniform nor do I intend to cover it up now. I knew my tattoos would always be a part of my identity so that’s why it just seems natural for that to be one of the most consistent pieces to show through.
