My first tattoo. Quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson, my flatmate gave it to me in a valentine’s card, because she knew how much it meant to me. finally got it tattooed :)
Here’s another “So it goes” tattoo, from the uncomparable Slaughterhouse-Five. It’s my first text-only piece, not including my “!@#%&*” tattoo.
RIP kurt Vonnegut.
Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
Ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

This is my tattoo on my right forearm done by Mike at Tip Top Tattoos in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is a quote from my favorite book, Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, and is something I always try to remember. It’s healing, so it’s a little scabby and is peeling, but it is a beautiful tattoo (it just looks a bit gross right now).
“Yearning for love made her feel like a cat that was always twining around ankles, meowing Pet me, pet me, look at me, love me. Better to be the cat gazing coolly down from a high wall, its expression inscrutable. The cat that shunned petting, that needed no one. Why couldn’t she be that cat? Be that cat!!! she wrote…”
It appears elsewhere in the book as well, but you get the idea!
