Tattoos

So far I have two tattoos. They both have a special meaning to me, and I’ve drawn them myself. I’ve used a lot of time considering what and where I wanted to have them, and the first I got is on my upper left arm, and is a sort of growing light. A bit hard to explain, but it’s my own, private symbol of life.

The second tattoo is on my back, a Triquetra. For me, it’s a pagan symbol of the divine. I know that for many, especially Wiccans, it represents the three stages of the Triple Goddess (Maiden, Mother, and Crone), but for me it is more a symbol of the life force, as well as mind, body, and soul.

It might not be a surprise for others that I am planning on my third one as well. I will probably use a lot of time figuring out how it will look like, all I know is that I would love to have a tree of life on my right upper arm. Yes, yet a symbol of life. The life force is so central in my believes, it’s in many ways the roots of it all. If that makes sense… I have no idea when I will get around to get this tattoo, the next step is to make a drawing I’m pleased with. I’ve done a couple of tests, but nothing I’ve even bothered to keep.

Do you have any tattoos? Do they have a deeper meaning for you, or are they just “for beauty”? 😉
