new tattoo!

the last 7 words in james joyce's 'ulysses'. i've wanted this forever, and it'll probably turn into a larger piece.

 

i think i'll probably have him fix up the S's a little bit so they're more connected. otherwise it's perfect!

 

it's still red, i still have tape marks on my boobs, but it's only a little sore this morning. tattooing directly over the sternum HURTS. the collarbones do a little bit, too.

 

oh, and as far as what it means to me: it's hard to explain, but it's one of those phrases that's stuck in my head since i read it. it's one of the most passionate statements ever written. it's very female. and if you know me, you know i'm not the least bit tentative about anything. i tend to know right away what i want and how i feel, and i'll jump without thinking twice. it kind of sums that up for me.
