However, the tattoo is not just a mark of my appreciation for Helena's acting abilities. Yes, the initials stand for 'Helena Bonham Carter', but the actual presence of the tattoo stands for seizing the day, and being who I want to be. Tattoos highlighting Carpe Diem are not uncommon, but I didn't want just that; I wanted something with a deeper, more personal meaning. Helena has a very unique personality who is, if she does not mind me saying so, not afraid to be true to herself. Her eccentric fashion sense is the cause of my own wardrobe.
It was only after I began to fall in love with Helena's roles that I started to feel comfortable with who I am. She also allowed me to realise one or two things about my own personality which I was not previously aware of. This tattoo is a reminder of that. Plus, it is, of course, a way to show my support for Helena's career. I absolutely love my tattoo, and no matter what anybody says about it, I will not ever regret my decision to have it done.
