Looking at this wonderful photo of Johnny Depp, which as usual I’ve swiped from the fab site Depp Impact, I’m very taken with not only his dapper vest (love a man in a vest) but his body art. I already have two tattoos – a Caduceus on my upper left back representing writing, printing, healing and on my left leg a daisy for when my flower was born. Since my father’s death, I’ve been toying with the idea of engraving a blue butterfly on my left writing arm as a symbol of transmutation, transformation, celebration, death and new life. Enjoy your weekend. I hope it is filled with blessings and beauty and thank you for visiting me. Here’s some lovely Handel, a piece my father always loved.

    That sounds like a lovely tribute to your Dad.
    I don’t have any tattoos but I really want to get one for my son. I just don’t know what would be the right symbol to represent him and what he means to me. Or where to put it!

    Meditate on it, Sleepydwarf and it will come. Make sure you know exactly what you want before you go into the parlour! With Daisy, my husband drew the Daisy I wanted and we added her date of birth underneath it. I have a shocking memory and so it helps when I am asked her birthdate.
