i always loved and wanted tattoos. to me its like permanent jewellery and pieces of art which you carry on your body. the body is the temple and all the temples i’ve seen (from churches to buddhist) are ornamentally and tastefully decorated.
i got my first tattoo as soon as it was legal to do it. so the day i turned 18 i got a rose on right my hand.
second one is a chinese symbol for the year of the dragon, which i belong to, on my right shoulder blade, on my 21st birthday.
third is the initial of my name on my left ankle when i was in the caribbean, when i turned 25.
fourth is a small spiral on my left shoulder when i turned 27.
fifth is the star of macedonia, in honor of my hero alexander the great. i did it on my 30th birthday.
the sixth tattoo got bigger and more colourful. on my 35th birthday i did my whole left sleeve with a scene of the universe, the full moon, birds and stars, a floating lotus on water and the symbol of life according to the ecuadorian shamans.
next one will be on my 36th birthday, a few kitten paw prints… i have to decide where exactly…
