Nobody doesn’t like Vonnegut. Or if they don’t, their opinion isn’t one I need to worry about.

I got this done about six months ago. If you notice, above the word &#8220;and&#8221; was the original tattoo, just two stars for the first half of the phrase. I&#8217;ve always loved Peter Pan and can&#8217;t wait to share it with future generations.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms, and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now.

I got this tattoo as a reminder of my spiritual goals. It&#8217;s a variation of the 42nd Psalm. I decided to get an image of a doe to represent my delicate nature and feminine qualities. The doe is also the patronus of Severus Snape from Harry Potter. So, love for God and magic all in one. I absolutely love this piece.

Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing.

I got this tattoo last May from Armen at High Priestess in Eugene, OR, but he doesn’t seem to be working there any more.The lines (“fair is foul” and “foul is fair”) are from the opening scene of Macbeth, which was an important text to my development as an English major. I got this tattoo both as a way to remind myself that things are not always what they seem and to celebrate my growth as a student and a scholar. This was taken right after I got it so it’s still a bit red and angry, but I love this tattoo and it’s held up really well considering its placement.

You invite things to happen. You open the door. You inhale. And if you inhale the chaos, you give the chaos, the chaos gives back.
