Do you have any tattoos? What is the meaning or significance of them? If you do have tattoos, do you have any regrets about any of them?
At last! A question I can answer with a “Yes,” a couple of photographs, and a short explanation. Whoopee!
I have a big tattoo on my left calf. I had it put on about a year after my first adult (not counting my spine surgery when I was 19 or losing an ovary when I was 23) life or death surgery. I had survived one more nearly dead but hearing from “the voice” that I was going to live. Second time around.
I helped my artist design a tattoo. I didn’t think it would be quite as enormous as it turned out to be, but it’s a big colorful phoenix. You know, the bird that burns to ashes and is reborn? That phoenix (not the city in Arizona).
I should have had the colors filled in again, but I didn’t have the spare change and it’s okay, even a bit faded. Life is forever born from the ashes.
