"...for we put the thought of all that we love into all that we make" ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

SO lately I've been thinking I wanted to do something... different. For me, anyway. I've always been pretty straight laced and walked a narrow path. Well, I decided to dive off the path into the woods. Take a walk on the wild side. For me.

I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do. Then some friends suggested getting a tattoo. And then I thought, why not? ;)

So, I did! Here it is! It's a tribal sunflower motif on my upper left arm. This was taken just after Seth (awesome tattoo artist at Rite Of Passage in Victor, NY) finished. It's not so red now.

I ♥ it! It's in a place where I can either show it off or hide it, depending on my mood (or job situation...).

I'm already planning another one :)


  1. I like it, too. I love the placement.

  2. I know exactly what has make you this as I did the same thing four years ago. My tatoo is invisible for others ( just a little above buttocks - my horoscope sign aries), but it gave me so much presumption . Yes, this was one of the best things I did in my life.

  3. I've thought so many times about getting asmall tatoo, but I've never been brave enough. THe last time I wanted to do something radical, I ended up getting my ears pierced again. I like the design you chose.

  4. It's lovely!! Way to bust out!

  5. It looks awesome, Jennie!!

  6. Oh my gosh Jennie, it looks GREAT! I want another tattoo as well! :)
