Tay Jardine got her first tattoo in December 2012. She and her friend Sam Panagakos got matching tattoos on their wrist of Simba from The Lion King. The tattoos were done at Planet New York Tattoo in Poughkeepsie, NY.
She explained the meaning on her twitter: “it’s a reminder for me to stay grounded ‘remember who you are'”
Tay is a big fan of Disney movies and The Lion King is one of her favorites. The particular image that they chose is not the character Simba himself, but Rafiki’s drawing of Simba from the film.
