I LOVE tattoos. I only have four. In the past several years, I have felt severely repressed when it comes to tattoos and piercings. I’m planning on changing that soon. I plan on going sometime soon to get my Tragus re-pierced, if possible. On the right side. If not, I’ll get the left side pierced.
Since tattoos are quite a bit more expensive, gotta save up for it. I have one planned for when the divorce is final, as sort of a celebration of myself to mark the occasion. To give meaning to that moment, I have decided to go with a rainbow phoenix in the center of my back. Rainbow to acknowledge my LGBTQI identity and a phoenix because the phoenix from Greek mythology is a creature the regenerates or is constantly reborn again. According to the myth, the phoenix dies in flames and then rises from the ashes. That’s pretty much representative of my life.
To give a visual, this is one design that I’m thinking of.
Let me know what you think – and post any other good pics of rainbow phoenixes that you might come across.
