Orwell and his writings came to me at a pivotal point in my life. When I read Nineteen Eighty-Four, it changed my life and the way I looked at the world. I got this tattoo to pay homage to Orwell and to show my rebellion against any government that manipulates their citizens into thinking the way the government wants them to. Many people see the tattoo and think I believe the words of it, but actually it is a reminder to myself to think before accepting as truth whatever someone tells me.
“War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength.”
– From 1984 by George Orwell
