Love it!!

      one of the hardest words to translate. It refers to "a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other will offer something that they both desire but are unwilling to suggest or offer themselves." a word from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego, listed in The Guinness Book of World Records as the "most succinct word."

      A tattoo idea. I've wanted one for over 10 years and STILL can't decide! Although, this one really intrigues me and means something that I believe in.

    Placement is on my left wrist. It says “meraki” which is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love —when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be. Done by Isaac Johnson at Branded Man Tattoo.

    This is my second tattoo :) Meraki - a Greek word, put your heart and soul into all that you do.

    The Red String of Fate: According to this myth, the gods tie a red string around the ankles (or, in some versions, the little finger) connecting two people who are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.

    In The Beauty and the Beast, this Latin motto is seen in the Beast’s stained glass window. It translates into English as "she conquers who conquers herself."

    Such a sweet tattoo. Can you see it...? :)
