The story of ink
Tattoos tell a personal story about a unique soul sharing the planet with us. A statement of "never again" might cover up razor blade cuts from a tough depression, an ampersand might symbol a partnership between two lovers, and a tree might symbolize a daughter with the lovely name of Aspen. Each story is a personal tale of struggle, achievement and hope. Take some time today to pull together all your courage and ask someone, maybe a stranger, about their body art. I have done this on many occasions and I always enjoyed the intimate outcome from the encounter. Do you have a tattoo? I have a sea turtle (the Earth was created on the turtle's back) being propelled through water, the elixir of life, and the water drifts into music. Live in harmony with nature and she will bless you with a sense of peace and wonder.
