"There's a small tattoo of a star inside her left wrist. 'My grandmother told me and my sisters that everyone has a special star. I looked at my star every night before bed, just like brushing my teeth. When I came to New York and I opened the window of the thirty-fifth-floor apartment, there's light pollution and fog, and I couldn't see my star. So I drew it on my wrist with a pen, but it kept washing away. Then I went to a tattoo parlor on Second Avenue and had it done. It was something I had been missing, and now, no matter where I went, it came with me.' She consciously created the Gisele persona as she started to become a star herself."
-Vogue April 2010, The Shape Issue

[...I'm thinking about getting a tat except I want it to have some type of symbolism like this. What about the phrase, "SET YOUR SOUL FREE"? It's def one of my favs and if I got it on my wrist it could remind me to always be true to myself and do what will make me happy. Aaaand I love that it isn't too common/generic. ]

"Gisele is a fantastic reminder to the fashion world that athleticism and curves are always in style, and that the best models stand as symbols of health and a love of life."
-Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue

“I think it's better when you're natural, when you just do whatever you want, instead of doing classes where I see all these other people holding back because they've been trained with certain skills or techniques. I'm like, whatever.
-Gisele Bündchen

  1. Gisele is pretty frickin awesome. Great quotes & photos. I think you should for sure get your tattoo done. I love the phrase, is it a quote from something?

    Wrist tattoos distort quite a lot, especially text...but I reckon it would look good!
