This is Sam's tattoo from Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves: The main character, Johnny Truant, strings these seemingly random words: Known. Some. Call. Is. Air. Am. and follows it with "Incoherent? Yes. Entirely without meaning? I'm afraid not." The assortment of words is actually phonetic Latin for "Non sum qualis eram." or "I am not what I once was."

On her tattoo: "My grandmother, who was also one of my closest friends, recently died. She was named Annabelle Lee after the Edgar Allan Poe poem, although spelled differently. In her memory, this is my new tattoo of the first stanza of the poem, with her name in her own handwriting (I got it from her passport)." Beautiful...
I want this placement running along my spinal cord with "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2"
I just like the size of this tattoo and that it's in a random spot... I wanna really small one in a random spot like this
