New(ish) Ink!!!

How fitting to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with an Irish themed tattoo right?

Well how’s this?

I’ve been wanting to dress up my semicolon tattoo for some time now and this was the idea I came up with to do so.

The Celtic knot is a nod to my adopted heritage and my pipe band life as well as to my earth-centered spiritual beliefs. The semicolon, though a beautiful symbol of my own battle with depression and suicidal ideation, has a Christian element that doesn’t jive with me. This makes it my own in a way.

Very happy with how it turned out. Once again, Jade rocked it out for me. She’s awesome and has been since day 1.

A great way to start the day and a great early birthday gift (tomorrow).

What do you think?

  1. Looks fantastic!!! Happy (early) Birthday!!
    You and my mother have the same birthday. It’s kinda cool actually. I’ve found that several of my WP family share birthdays with my blood family. I don’t believe in coincidence so I treasure these connections even more!

    • Have you ever heard of the birthday problem? It’s a statistics problem and it shows you don’t need very many people in a group to all but guarantee someone in the group shares a birthday. It’s odd how that probability works out.

  2. I agree…your tattoo is great and original…how wonderful that you took your symbolism to the next level and made it a unique expression of your continuing growth/evolvement. Thanks for sharing 🙂
