So, I finally went through with it. I got inked. The strange, circular, Orlanthis symbol really has no hard, concrete meaning other than a dream to me. Something that I share with others, I've come to find. At least five other people have reported the symbol, and all are practitioners/artist of some sort. It symbolizes as best as I can tell a struggle to find balance, a balance between purity and sin, between fantasy and reality, between myself and others.
It hurts a bit right now. Didn't hurt nearly as bad as I thought it would. Just can keep the ******** thing from drying out, even with cleaning and lotions. I put it where i can cover it easily, but right between the shoulder blades, I can seem to clean it well myself. Perhaps I can wrestle a roomie into cleaning it tonight.
yet another secrete to hide from the parents: bisexual, pagan, no application out yet, no health insurance, my new cat, a tattoo, I've had sex. *sigh*
But, at least I'm being me, right?
