i heart her.
Lately I've been spending the majority of my free time daydreaming about my next tattoo. I know that there's a large chunk of people out there that are disgusted by tattooing, however, i think of it as a beautiful form of art and self expression. The idea of getting a feather permanently inked on my body first came from an inspiring latin proverb, allis volat propriis. Translated into english it means...
"she flies with her own wings"
I find this quote absolutely beautiful & very meaningful to my own life. To me it symbolizes a sense of independence & strength. Strength to stand out from a crowd and be able to have the confidence to proudly say.."yes, not only am I a unique individual but I am also strong enough to depend on myself. I don't feel the need to rely on others and I am a leader rather than a follower, i fly with my own wings!" Initially I planned on getting a bird but I just think it's so common and cliche. My search began and ended almost simultaneously when I immediately ran into a picture on the web of Erin Wasson in Flair magazine. Oh My Gah. It was love at first site. I knew then that a tattoo of a feather definitely had to fit somewhere into my near future. Now my only dilemma seems to be the placement. I honestly can't decide where I should put it. I'm so confused. I am loving the behind the ear look but I already have two wrist tattoos and I'm not completely sure if I want another one so visible..in plain sight. This is where you come in. I need some serious opinions. The photos below are ones that are currently inspiring me. What do you think? Be honest, I can take it.
