~Ink~

I've toyed with the idea of getting a tattoo for many years.  But you see, the problem is... well, I'm a big chicken.  The other problem is that I didn't want to get a tattoo 'just to have one' or because I wanted to be 'cool'.  I wanted to wait until I had a reason, until it would represent something significant in my life.

My trip to Ireland had such deep meaning to me... I want to commemorate it with some ink.  I think I've settled on a celtic harp... it represents my Irish heritage, my trip to Ireland, and also the importance music has in my life; my musical talent and the great appreciation I have for music.

Something along the lines of these:







I'm also trying to figure out how to incorporate Dave and the kids... I kind of like the idea of the three shamrocks symbolizing the three most important people in my life.  Maybe putting their zodiac signs inside each shamrock?  

I obviously haven't gotten it completely figured out yet, it's still a work in progress.  
But I'm excited to finally get my first tat.  :)

I love this idea :) I love tattoos. Especially when there is a lot of thought and symbolism behind them. They tell a story. It's really not that painful either. You'll do FINE :)
LOVE YOU
