Sorry I haven't posted. There's been some family drama going on, but I can't talk about that.
On my birthday the girls and I went to Ink City Tattoos. For my 50th birthday I got my first tattoo, pictures of which will be posted as soon as I have some. Karen also got a small winged tattoo but we couldn't talk Carol into biting the bullet and getting inked, although she did hang around and lend lots of moral support. There you go folks, female bonding at it's finest.
I now have two Celtic dragons interlocked into the symbol for infinity residing on my lower back. At first I got that particular tattoo because it just spoke to me.
I didn't even notice it was the symbol for infinity until Sweet Thang pointed it out while rubbing lotion on it for me. He also pointed out that the two dragons seemed to be locked in battle like as in good verses evil and that it was the same as the yin/yang symbol. Later, I got to doing some research and everything clicked. I was meant to have that tattoo!
I have Celtic heritage. The dragon is a symbol of power, wisdom, and one who has overcome an adversary or fortress (like maybe 50 years of life and family strife of every kind??) and exemplifies elemental power, especially of the earth. It is sometimes a waterserpent or monster and haunt wells or pools (I'm a Scorpio, a water sign).
Infinity, well, 50 sure seems like forever sometimes. I'm always locked in a battle between good and evil. I mean, I know what I should do, but what I want to do is usually something entirely different!!
So, there you have it. I've been inked and now I have to get pictures. I need to figure out how to do it and still stay PG rated. Those dragon's tails go, well, lets just say they go lower than my lowest pair of hip huggers. I'm sure Sweet Thang will be more than willing to play photographer!!
