OMG I just saw my next tattoo! I'm so filled with excitement and urgency about this one, it's something I haven't felt since my X-Men tattoo and that was a long time ago. For me this one simple image encompasses so much. It's a reminder of Olrek, my favorite RPG character and my alter ego in many ways. It's a reminder of all the values that are central to me: passion, honor, magick, strength, and stubbornness. It's a reminder of all of what's best within me and that life can be painful but that pain shapes us into what we are. It's also a symbol of my coming out of the medication haze after two years of being numb, of reclaiming myself. And of course, it's a symbol of loss, of how temporary life really is and how important it is to live every day as if it were your last because you never know.
