Ink

I've been wanting to do it for a while now, so I booked a consult at the tattoo studio down the street for my birthday. It was only a two month wait, and that two months seemed to fly by!
I got a tattoo of the Holy Spirit dove. I always loved the idea that God sent a part of himself to be with us after Jesus ascended. "God with us" is what runs through my mind when I picture the symbol of the dove.

This was my inspiration image

And this is my finished tattoo!
The inspiration image was a little bit too serious looking, so I like how my tattoo artist made it a bit 'lighter'. And I'm very happy with it. While I was cleaning it this morning I was afraid it was going to wash off, but then I realized it's gonna be there forever. And then I Laughed Out Loud.
