Alis Volat Propriis

Check. \m/

Something I have wanted for a long time, but like I had once told a friend who disapproved of tattoos, "I will never ink something on me if I didn't whole heartedly believe in it." I decided that I wanted this one a long time ago, but somehow I didnt feel like I was there yet. And then, today, I knew I had to get it.

It's Latin for "She flies with her own wings". Ask me what I have learned to value, time and again, more than ANYTHING else after all the struggle, heartbreaks and ups and downs and all the oh-my-god-WTF-is-this-a-fucking-soap-opera? life - without a doubt, its my independence. Being alone, no longer unsettles me, and trust me, that is a HUGE thing for me. So well... I got my second tattoo.. :)

P.S: Give it up for the tattoo guy Robin, who has done one heck of a neat job on it! I. LOVE. IT. :D

P.P.S: Tattoo# 3 remaining for it to get crossed off my list. And I know whats it going to be already.. :)

I love tattoos. And your's is amazing. It's so fucking hot. I have a phrase I want inked on me too! From the Gita though.

The only gripe I have with getting one is that it could screw my job prospects. But it doesn't matter if you're wearing full sleeves right?!

And now that I know it hurts less than getting a wax, I'm cool.

Don't ask. Lost a bet once.

I totally and vehemently disapprove of tattoos...... but somehow what you said, knowing you, makes sense.... though I would personally never do it, it does seem apt... and totally LOVE the font..... waiting to see your third one... cheers!
