One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats.

This is a quote by Henry David Thoreau. I found it in Letters To A Spiritual Seeker. He is one of my favorite authors.

Now I&#8217;ll never forget to bring a pen ever again. It is writing forgive me in reference to Buddy Wakefield&#8217;s &#8220;Human, the Death Dance&#8221;.

Now I’ll never forget to bring a pen ever again. It is writing forgive me in reference to Buddy Wakefield’s “Human, the Death Dance”.

I can bear any pain as long as it has meaning.

I got this tattoo at Tattoos by Fabio in Cambridge, UK. It is a quote from the Hobbit. The full quote reads &#8220;Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool! he said to himself, and it became a favourite saying of his later, and passed into a proverb.&#8221; My dad read The Hobbit to my brother and I and this quote has always stuck with me since. 
(Resubmitting because i think my previous submission was blurry, since it was approved then deleted)

My second tattoo from Scary Carrie in Lawrence, KS and my contribution to the thousands of other &#8220;So It Goes&#8221; tattoos.
Vonnegut&#8217;s book is one of my absolute favorites, I couldn&#8217;t help but get this inked. The arrow is from a quote that I felt went along with the other, &#8220;An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great.&#8221;
Hope you like it!

This tattoo, I got as an ode to the love of my live and J. K. Rowling, Severus Snape, and Harry Potter as a whole.
In my eyes, Snape died for love, like the middle brother who owned the Resurrection Stone.I had the circle tattooed green, to represent not only Snape and his house&#8217;s colour green, but also Lily and Harry&#8217;s eyes.
I fell in love, and I will &#8220;Always,&#8221; love that person, much like Snape.
