I'm debating whether or not I want to do the 100 things about me meme to mark the occasion. And so, because my brain is on 100 things overload, I will only be posting a fluff piece today.
This is the tattoo I have on the back of my neck. It's a lotus flower. The symbol is the Om symbol. For those of you who don't know, the Om symbol is the supreme and most sacred symbol of Hinduism and Buddhism. It represents various fundamental triads and is believed to be the spoken essense of the universe. The spoken essense of the universe...isn't that beautiful? The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor, and good luck.
And I know you all will ask so let me just say that no, it didn't hurt that bad. The only thing that bugged me was that while she was tattooing the symbol and the smoke above it, my eyes would vibrate. I kid you not. My eyes would actually vibrate. At least, they felt like they were...and it freaked me out.
