i designed a tattoo over a year ago

It was a creative impulse, fueled by a question from The Artist’s Way by Julia CameronI designed a tattoo using my handwriting.  I don’t necessarily even want a tattoo!  But inspiration was calling.  In designing it, I considered a number of things:

=> What would best reflect me?
=> What could I live with for the rest of my life?
=> Placement – would it be primarily for me or for others?
=> Purpose – why do it?

I knew that *words* needed to be central to the design and was quite clear about the message (especially after receiving the following confirmation a couple of weeks ago):

tell your story

The same phrase written out at least 50 times in my own journal!   It drives me yes – and is central to my calling and purpose… but could I live with it etched on my body for the rest of my life?  I don’t know.


So I had the phrase turned into a bracelet instead.  😀

[The bracelet was created by Becky Strahle of Farmgirl Paints.  Her blog is HERE and her Etsy shop will reopen September 15th!]
