fade away

I don't have any tattoos. It's not that I have an aversion to them, nor am I afraid of needles. ( I donate blood every three months!) The simple reason being is that I'm too indecisive, too fickle. I often grow tired of things quickly and change my mind at the blink of an eye. Tattoos are too definite, too long term, too 'there for life'.

One other reason that I have never gone down the path of getting 'inked'  is perhaps that I've never been so inspired by an idea or seen a tattoo that I absolutely adore or found something meaningful that I want on me for life.

However....the above image caught my eye a while ago and every time I come across it, I'm growing more and more attached. It's so beautiful, so liberating, I just love it.

I recently heard someone describe their tattoos, as being part of their body, like their nose or their hands. I never thought of it like that before.

What do you think of tattoos?


  1. love them, i have two!
    and beautiful blog! so much inspiration since we have similar styles. Love it!

  2. I've had a peace sign for almost three years now. I absolutely love it and knew that I wanted it for years before I got it. I know I would like writing around it but every few months or so what I want around it changes. So I know the feeling! What do you feel like getting at this very moment?


  3. I love that tattoo and it's idea!

    I wouldn't mind getting a small tattoo on my back or arm! :)
