This is similar to another idea I have for a nautilus to be placed somewhere on my skin! They are a living thing that has managed to survive changes in it's environment without dying off or morphing into something else after 50 MILLION YEARS! If that doesn't scream "survival", I don't know what will! Sea Shells, Neck Tattoos, Fancy Art, Artists Impressions, Seashells, Awesome Colors, Pretty Tattoos, Shells Ideas, Horns Tattoo

Ever growing, ever changing. The nautilus shell consists of ever-larger chambers in which the sea creature lives for a while until it outgrows that particular chamber. Once it grows a new, larger chamber it cannot go back to the previous ones; they no longer fit. It has no choice but to move on. Yet, the old chambers are still a part of who they are. Your past defines who you are, you don’t necessarily have to go back to your old ways but they are still apart of who you are today.
