Something beautiful

The lure of a tattoo has been with me for a while:  Creating meaningful permanence.  Reclaiming some of the control I have lost from my body. 

I wanted something with personal importance.  And I wanted something that would signify a certain moment in my life.

What better time than now...

I decided on a small feather with a tangled, flawed area.  I wanted something that symbolizes freedom and strength, yet more importantly, something to act as a reminder that despite this terrifying disease, my life can be beautiful and awe-inspiring.  Imperfections included.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  Enjoy the beauty in life.  And embrace your imperfections.
