    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." Absolutely beautiful.

    House of Leaves tattoo - These words are strung together in a cryptic manner to form the Latin phrase "Non sum qualis eram" or "I am not what I 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"

my sister, and my cousin and i are getting this type of heart on the side our pinky finger. since we were little kids our way of saying "goodbye i love you" was a pinky swear. and we still do this even today :)

"Have I gone mad? I'm afraid so, you're entirely bonkers, but I'll tell you a secret... all the best people are."

Weirdest idea for a tattoo that I really don't understand. BUT the art is incredible. Look at the mirror affect.

Fern. Should I get this? In honor of you. Maybe like....down my cheek and neck. : ) But seriously, if I were going to get a tattoo... a smaller, more discretely placed version of this = cool

Another autumn leaves tattoo... I don't like the placement but I love the style.
