Tattoo?

Lately, I've been thinking a LOT about getting my tattoo. I've always known that I wanted a poppy flower (in memory of my Poppy), somewhere on my foot. Just a small one. And over the past few years I've seen some really cute ones on the inner wrist. Sometimes just stars, sometimes a word or phrase. I like the words and phrases, like a mantra always there to remind you. I'd like someone who's a pretty good artist to draw on my wrist kinda what I'm wanting in a Sharpie or something so I can see if I do like it. I'm throwing around different options in my head..

"Strength" "Faith" and "Hope" - probably pretty cliche, but in the past year or so, all three have been tested, and its taken a lot of work to keep them as strong as they are. I think it'd be nice to have it always there reminding me that I've been through a lot, and made it.

"Breathe" - I hate Lindsay Lohan for getting this on her wrist, I don't want people to think that I am copying her.. But its such good advice that I rarely remember when I need it.

"You're never gonna be like anyone.. And thats okay." - my favorite Bowling For Soup song lyrics, and it makes me smile. Like getting permission to be myself. I don't have to be as skinny as this person, or as hot as that person, I can be me. And people still love me.

"To her own reflection she said, " I will be strong." - some more of my favorite lyrics, by Finch (you might notice them at the top of my blog page!), its just another reminder of keeping myself strong.

I'm still going over my thoughts in my head, so I don't think I'll be rushing to the tattoo parlor any time in the near future..

Do you have a wrist tattoo? What is it? Pictures by chance?
