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
