Maybe you can tell, my brain just won’t shut off today… I’m a little manic.
Nervous energy I suppose.
So, I’m beginning my 3rd posting today, a record!
Since this blog started out as a tattoo blog, even though it has morphed into something different, I still have to pay homage to the ink.
Yesterday, I got tattoo number 15.
I got it for a couple of reasons. First of all, because I wanted it, that’s really the only reason I need. But secondly, I got it in an attempt to ease some of my pain, tattoos have the power to do that, you know. And the third reason I got it, is because of what it represents.
I chose a variation on a Celtic love knot. I love Celtic knots and I wanted something that represents love. I am searching for love and wanted some significance for my search upon my skin. Similar to the reason I got the swallow, to signify my search for home (which I still have yet to find).
So, I found the knot that I liked, gave the image to the awesome Dustin Zion @ Asylum Tattoo, he drew it up and shot some ink into my skin!
I love it!!

LOVE my love knot!
I had it done in red, because love and red travel hand in hand…
