Heaven Peralejo went on a solo trip to Bali, Indonesia recently and created permanent reminders of it on her body through three tattoos.
The 23-year-old actress shared pictures of her new inks on her arms that each held different meanings that encapsulated everything she felt and learned in this “journey of self-discovery” in the island paradise.
“With my first solo trip to Bali, I discovered a newfound sense of independence and self-assurance,” she said in the caption of her post before explaining what each of her tattoos meant.
“The word “found” serves as a constant reminder of this whole experience. In a country unknown to me, I learned to embrace my own company and appreciate the freedom of exploring on my own,” she said about her “found” tattoo on her left hand, under her thumb.
“Second, Bali taught me the power to “surrender”. Letting go of my need for perfection and careful planning, I allowed myself to immerse in the beauty of spontaneity. Each day, I learned to trust the magic of what lays ahead of me,” she then said about her “surrender” tattoo on her forearm.
“Lastly, the word “forward” symbolizes my commitment to never dwell in the past. It embodies forgiveness and self-love, urging me to appreciate every moment and keep moving forward. It serves as a reminder to cherish life’s experiences and keep exploring the wonders and beauty of the world we live in,” she shared, describing the large arrow tattoo on her right forearm.
“These 3 tattoos represent the impact Bali has had on my journey of self-discovery. They remind me the importance of finding oneself, surrendering to life’s flow, and to always move forward with love and forgiveness,” she concluded.
Heaven recently starred in the series “The Rain in España” with her love team partner Marco Gallo, based on the popular Wattpad novel by Gwy Saludes. They are both also set to star in the movie “The Ship Show” which will premiere in local cinemas this August 9.
