Aidan Meyer’s 3 tattoos keep his life in perspective
We Asked 20 Women: What do you think about guys who have tattoos or piercings?
The edelweiss flower on Aidan Meyers' arm is a nod to fond childhood memories he had of his his father who died last spring. Aidan Meyer has three tattoos on his arm: an hourglass, a figure of a man and an edelweiss flower. Each is a symbol of overcoming an adverse period of his life. Meyer, a senior public relations major, got his first tattoo when he was a sophomore at Syracuse University, at a time when he felt that he was lacking direction and purpose. The hourglass illustration comprises three glyphs that represent three valuable actions he wanted to embody as he moved forward in life: create, challenge and transform. Meyer said these three glyphs, particularly transform, remind him to accept change over the passage of time. The struggles he overcame that summer — sleeping on a futon, getting kicked out of his apartment, being independent — helped him grow and mature in a relatively short period of time.
