Welcome, welcome. Gather round and join the fun. Ink (or tattoos) can be such a personal and sometimes intimate way of expressing yourself. Of course, there is the surface beauty of the design. However, many tattoos carry a wealth of meaning often known only to the person wearing it. Tell us all about the ink you have or, if you haven't succumbed to the dark side yet, tell us about the ink you would like to have. Sign ups for Ink Me start right now at the bottom of this post and will run through the 28th, the last day of ICLW.
Earlier this week, my show and tell post featured my tattoos. I told you how the stars around my dragon represented the babies I've lost and I mentioned wanting to add a dragonlet for each of my living children. Well, I haven't added the dragonlets yet but, I have found a picture of a baby dragon that is just what I want.
I also want to get a tree of life tattoo. AnotherDreamer has a fabulous Celtic knot tree of life tattoo. I went searching for a similar picture online and I found out an artist named Jen Delyth had created the Celtic knot tree of life adorning AnotherDreamer and she had designed another Celtic knot tree of life that is diamond shaped. I desperately want this tattooed in the traditional tramp stamp location (LOL). I love the idea of the tree of life representing how everything is interconnected.
I am torn between getting the tree done in all browns (variegated, not solid) or in a rainbow of colors coming out from a brown center. Which would you pick?
