      Happy ending? There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part. So just give me a happy middle and a very happy start. Not as a tattoo but love the saying

      "This is my third tattoo, and I’m already in love with it. My parents used to read me Shel Silverstein poems when I was little and I still read his books today. This particular poem, which is from the newest compilation With Everything On Top, really makes me think of my dad. He passed away last fall and most of the inspiration for my tattoos comes from him. This was done by Matt Bushart at Enchanted Dragon Tattoo Parlor in Sierra Vista, AZ." <-Not me but I like the quote.

    Shel Silverstein

    Love this tattoo from Jack Layton's farewell letter to Canada before he passed away. RIP Jack Layton.“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” - Jack Layton, 1950-2011

    E.E. Cummings Tattoo


    I got this tattoo at Heroic Ink in Ames, Iowa. It’s from the book The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein. I love everything about this tattoo, and think the message is fantastic.

    “Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself”

    Cool idea.

    i carry your heart 💜
