About My Tattoo

My tattoo is in direct regards with my spirit guide type figure in my life. It's on my left outside ankle, it is a feather with ties and beads on it. Think Native American style.

Why My Tattoo is Healing to Me

This tattoo reminds me that no matter what I face I'm never alone and will make it through the issues that end up being mere road bumps in my life. All I have to do is look at it or remember that it is permanently there and I am okay.


  • If anyone is considering getting a tattoo, I recommend that they have the image in their mind first or at least have a picture they can closely associate themselves with. Imagine yourself as a 60 year old, and wonder if it will still have the same meaning as it did when you got it permanently inked on your body.

Lovely, I really like it. Feathers is a nice choice for a tattoo.
