There are two tattoos that I REALLY want to get. The first is on my ankle/foot area that reads “keep graceful dancing” – it’s from one of my favorite Blue October songs and will be in honor of my grandmother who no matter what life threw out at her, could always manage to dance through it. I also think it is from her that my own mother got much of her strength from and in turn, I get my own inner strength from my mom, who also manages to continue to rejoice and enjoy all that life has to offer and dance when ever the opportunity arises no matter what life throws at her. So I suppose in a way it will be an homage to, the two most important women in my life. The two women who some of my earliest memories include being spun around in dance.
The second is on on my right wrist and the words “dream dust” a quote from this Langston Hughes poem.
Gather out of star-dust,
And splinters of hail,
One handful of dream-dust,
Not for sale.
– Langston Hughes
This poem is particularly meaningful to me, because I strongly believe in the power of our dreams and holding on to them. This will serve as a little reminder to me-to never loose faith in my own dreams.
The hubs is against the idea of me getting a tattoo on my wrist. What do you all think? Yay or nay? If you remember I posted a while back that I wanted a white one…but I’ve not heard a whole lot of good things about white tattoos (even though I still really want one) I think a lighter color on my wrist would be great…
