Pardon my rambling thoughts...
Okay, so I am a very visual, artistic person who has been fascinated with tattoos for a long time. I actually lived above a tattoo parlor in Philly and almost went in numerous times to get one, but could never commit. I have recently become obsessed with LA INK which has reinvigorated my thinking about getting a tattoo. Seeing the talent and artistic brilliance that these top notch tattoo artists have makes me want to finally go and do this. I always wonder if I will regret it once I do it though...
For me a tattoo would need to have a serious meaning to me. If I am permanently branding myself I want that image to be important to me forever. The image would also need to be artistically brilliant. The coolest tattoo I have seen to date was on a friend of mine in Philly. He was a big burly guy who had huge arms. On his forearm he had the Ants Drawing by M.C. Escher in full color.
I have been a huge M.C. Escher fan since I was a kid (hence my profile pic), so this tattoo just knocked me out. I have a job where I couldn't have a large tattoo in a visible location like that though.
For the longest time I invisioned that I would get a tattoo with the taurus symbol intertwined with another taurus symbol to represent my twin and the capricorn symbol to represent my older sister.
The relationship between me and my sisters has been the most important of my life. As for the zodiac symbols, as much as astrology is usually insane, the traits typically associated with the Taurus fit me to a tee. I also love the graphic look of the symbols.
Recently I have thought about getting a fleur de lis to represent Louisiana. Over the past few years I have been introduced to the culture, music and people of Louisiana and have fallen in love. I have met the most amazing people and had some of the best times of my life. My two best friends I have met through a Louisiana music artist and my friendship with these two women has truely been life changing. If I was to get a fleur de lis I would want it done in black and white with a graphic background.
If only I could afford to go to LA and have one of the artists at LA INK do it for me!
There wasn't much of a point to this blog beyong sharing my tattoo dreams. Maybe one day I will bite the bullet and go through with it.
