Niykee Heaton’s shoulder tattoo says “My ambition is my weaponry” which is a line from her song “I’m Ready.” “My lyrics have become a part of me,” she says. In an instagram post she explained:
I wrote “I’m Ready” when I had just turned 18, left home, and moved to New York with LP to pursue my music. It was the first song I ever recorded in a real studio. Just me and my guitar. A shitty quality demo, that I didn’t think twice about releasing. But I knew this song was important. It set the tone for my journey, and through the obstacles I’ve faced, this song became my anthem. I released “I’m Ready” on my Soundcloud a week ago, and already; 7 people have tattooed my lyrics on their bodies. You can call me whatever you want, think of me as you please; but I create music for this reason alone. To affect people with my words, to change their day, change their lives. I just wanted to thank you guys for helping me accomplish my dream and my goal. To simply create music that serves a purpose. And even if it only affected these 7 people… that’s enough for me. Thank you, I love you.
