Even though I have already blogged about this topic here and here, I have been thinking a lot about the tattoo that I want to get lately, so I am going to indulge my self and write another post on the topic, because with my anniversary coming up I have been thinking about this topic a lot.
Given the symbology of my design I would have been a nice thing get for my anniversary, instead we got patio furniture. I got no regrets there, I love how our sun room is now, but still the desire for this tattoo is there nagging at my subconscious, and frequently breaking through into my conscious thoughts.
I would have gotten it by now, but it just does not seem a responsible use of money, given that it is totaly decorative with no practicable applications. I suspect that a large part of its subversive appeal is that it would be such an irresponsible way to spend our money. Oh, well maybe for my birthday in August.
This is the design for my next tattoo. The 21 point sun represents the day I got married. The sun because it was the summer solstice. The 3 large points represent the year, 2003, the six larger points the month, June, and all 21 points the day, the 21st. I am not sure what will be in the rest of the design. The thing in the center is an old alchemy symbol for fusion.
