I want one so so so SO badly...

So, I have been thinking about getting some tattoos pretty seriously the past few weeks.

I really want to get a quote from W.H. Auden's poem lullaby "Find the mortal world enough" on my wrist. This quote is meaningful to me for several reasons, only one of them being religious. I don't want people to get the idea that I don't believe in an afterlife from my tattoo though, so that kind of scares me. To me, it means that I will make my life what I dreamed of as being "heavenly." I hold this notion close to my heart, because I know how ugly the world is capable of making people and I chose a long time
ago to never be like that. I endured some pretty rough stuff when I was a relatively young teenager, and after that I made the concious choice to not let hate consume me. I decided that I would make myself happy, because no one else was capable of doing that for me. So that is what that tattoo would mean to me. =)

Second on my list is this...

I've wanted some kind of bird tattoo for a long time, and this is just subtle enough. I am so in love with it.

Also on my list is possible getting "A mind without books is like a body without a soul" on the back of my neck. It is actually a quote from Cicero that I perverted to suit me, haha.
I'm so obsessed. INK ME OKAY


  1. Libbster!! I want a tattoo kind of similar to those birds on my left shoulder. I want to wait until I am "free" to get it, though. So who knows when that immense feeling will overcome me.

    I love you and your positive attitude! <3

    I sure hope that feeling presents itself to you soon, I know how waiting for it feels. It is so hard to wait, especially for things like that. I know how unrealistic this idea is for you, but when I moved away from Billings, that feeling became so much more tangible. And that was what was right for me, and may not even be close for you.
    You have people who love you and are always here for you though, regardless of whether or not that feeling is there.
    Love you.

  3. I drew a picture of Alice falling down the rabbit hole with the white rabbit and I am almost 100% that I want it on my ribs area. Yes, let's inquire some tattoo parlors while in Missoula.

    I love all of the above images/tattoos.
