I have loved to read since I was a little girl. This tattoo represents my love of the written word. It is my first, but won’t be my last literary tattoo.
I’ve always loved Harry Potter. It got me through a dark period in my life where I thought I was alone, I had no friends. I would turn to these books. They’ve also been my childhood. I grew up reading these. The whole series has just always meant a lot to me.
When I turned 18, I decided to go in and get a Harry Potter tattoo. It was kind of impulsive, but I love how it turned out.
I loved the ending, though I know a lot of people hated it. “All Was Well”, kind of applies to life too. Everything is going to work out fine, ya’ know? I always find myself looking at it when I seem to be stuck.
Plus, it’s really nice to carry a piece of it with me; always.

The bird is a swallow. In olden days, sailors used to tattoo them above their hearts. If they drowned while at sea, they believed the swallow would carry their soul home.

A reminder to myself that I have a right to exist in this world.

My favorite book is Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card. Like Ender, I am a “third” (I also have an older brother and sister). This tattoo is placed where a monitor would be.
Two of my favorite authors is Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee. When I was deployed to Afghanistan my friends sent me their new book they wrote together. It is called Forbidden and it is the first in the “Books of Mortals” series. I immediately knew I wanted the cover image as a tattoo even before I read the book! I was not disappointed, I devoured it in ten hours, I could not just put it down. I personally believe some words just leave a good “taste” when spoken. (Forgive me for being a bit strange.) Mortal is one of those words, and it is the second book in the series so it was perfect for my tattoo. It also tied in well with my connection to the story. Thanks for listening to me ramble!
