The things you do for love

December 9, 2016

Are you crazy?


Why are you doing this?


These are only some things I was told about getting a tattoo for a magazine.


As you may know I am the Co-EIC of an on campus magazine at Iowa State called Ethos magazine. Ethos is a general interest magazine that captures the culture of Iowa State. I have been a part of Ethos since the second week of my freshman year. 


Next semester while in New York I will miss being a part of Ethos so much, so I decided to keep Ethos a small part of me I would get a tattoo for a story. 


We have pitched a tattoo story almost every issue that I have been a part of so I wanted to make sure it got done before I left. One of the wonderful writers and photographers Hannah Olson took interest in the piece and I love how it turned out. 


Now Ethos will always be a part of me. Literally. 


Read below the wonderful words of Hannah and the beautiful photos by Sam Greene. Also shoutout to Daniel for being a rad artist and friend.
