"Fly Across The Sea On Wings Full Of Wind"
Game Of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire By George R. R. Martin
My literary tattoo (and my first)! I am so in love. The word, gwedh, meaning bond in Sindarin, is (one of) the language spoken by Elves in Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’.
Representing the root of my love for books and reading, the bond created between my father and I through Tolkien, and friendship. My bestfriend got a matching one for the word gwaedh, also meaning bond, compact, troth, in Sindarin.
My first tattoo was a quote from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. It reads “I am I am I am” and is written by a feather quill.

One of my favorite ee cummings poems paired with one of his drawings. Inked by Tony and Jinx Proof Tattoos in Washington DC
one’s not half two. It’s two are halves of one:
which halves reintegrating,shall occur
no death and any quantity;but than
all numerable mosts the actual more
minds ignorant of stern miraculous
this every truth-beware of heartless them
(given the scalpel,they dissect a kiss;
or,sold the reason,they undream a dream)
one is the song which fiends and angels sing:
all murdering lies by mortals told make two.
Let liars wilt,repaying life they’re loaned;
we(by a gift called dying born)must grow
deep in dark least ourselves remembering
love only rides his year.
All lose,whole find
“Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.” That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”
For my love on John Green and his work, the ship for my latest trip to Tanzania and all the things i found there, literally and metaphorically.
