This is my 6th tattoo. I got it in memory of my 4 great grandmothers. I grew up with all 4 of them and they all died within a year of each other (when i was 22). The sparrows always return to the same location when the migrate. In addition, once they find a mate they always keep them. As a maritime/sailing tradition it symbolizes that no matter how far a sailor travels, they will return home and be faithful. This tattoo is by Wes Schulz at DreamsCollide in Lancaster, PA
"Why do you stay with such a fool?" "Hmmm. I suppose because he's been the most powerful magus on this plane exactly four times. Of course, half of those times he was the only magus remaining, therefore fit every superlative for magi, especially most foolish. However, one time, he gained a power respected, feared... and fetching." "Huh? How'd he fall from that exalted height?" "Even the most foolish of men can't match the hubris of magi, my apprentice. No exceptions. " -@AuFleecer
