6th One...

I went for my sixth tattoo on Sunday. I've got to say it's my favorite.

It's only the second one with real meaning behind it. The first one (which was my 5th) is the flower of my mother's birth month. She is my strength and we are very close, so that is my version of the MOM tattoo.

This most recent one is on my left ribcage. It's the Swan of Tuonela. It's signifigant for me in so many ways in the stage of my life I'm currently in. The whole picture, the swan itself, everything. The funny thing is I expected it to hurt like nothing else I've ever gotten, since it is on my ribs, and goes over several stretch marks. I barely felt it most of the time. I focused on my journey and the road ahead and that got me through.
