It's Feature and Follow Friday again!! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.
Question of the Week: If you were to get a tattoo, what would it say, or what would the graphic be? Or if you have a tattoo, share a picture and its meaning.
I love this question! Then again, I'm a tattoo fan, so I find this so fun. Okay, I have two tattoos...one on my left ankle, and the other on the small of my back (aka the tramp stamp.) LOL! Let's start with the first one I got...the one on my back...
My husband loves wolves and I love unicorns. The wolf is meant to represent my husband, and the unicorn me. The vines around it signify us being linked and drawn together.
My ankle tattoo...
Ignore the fact that my ankle is slightly swollen today due to being on my feet all day. When my husband and I were dating, he bought me a bouquet of different types of flowers, with one single blue rose in the middle. I kept it and pressed it in a book and still have it after 14 years. On our first anniversary, he bought me two dozen blue roses to remember that one I kept. So I knew I wanted a blue rose. It was supposed to vine down over my foot, but let me tell you, when you get down onto the foot area, that shit hurts really freakin bad. I finally told the guy to "close it off here, close it off here!" So it curves around the bottom ankle bone and stops there.
Then there's the butterfly. Butterflies symbolize metamorphosis due to their various stages of growth. They start off as something kind of gross and ugly, and then they leave the past behind and emerge transformed into something beautiful. I felt that way about my marriage to Mark. He's my second husband, and there had to be a whole lot of changing from what I once was before... it symbolizes our past horrible relationships turning into something new and beautiful together, and it connects to the rose, which kind of came to symbolize us becoming one.
It probably sounds really silly to anyone else but us, but that's the nature of tattoos I guess. :-)
