I'm wanting to get a tattoo after surviving the battle/war that has been my divorce and my new freedom from my cheating ex.

I really like something that goes with either bible verse: "he will restore what the locust ate" or "be strong and courageous" (I kind of like this one more because it has a slight double meaning for me)

I don't know of any pictures that would go with either one of those. Phoenixes are very common and I'm looking for something different.

Does anyone have some suggestions? Or do you have any tattoos you would like to show/share?

How about something like an Ouroboros? From Wikipedia: "It can also represent the idea of primordial unity related to something existing in or persisting from the beginning with such force or qualities it cannot be extinguished."

Don't make anyone a priority when you are only an option.

Well locusts eat plants, so maybe your favorite, or a regional plant, pristine or slightly chewed, whichever conveys the meaning most aptly to you.

You can tattoo the words. My dd had a fave saying and had it tattooed on her shoulder. She plans to add flowers in the future

A slightly chewed flower or heart sounds good

I'm thinking of the words along with something since it will be on my hip..

I was just reading an article on Ginko Trees yesterday... they are one of the oldest types on the planet and very resiliant. As a matter of fact, they were supposedly the only vegetation that survived within a mile radius of an atomic bomb blast.

Your inquiry made me think of the tree. They're quite beautiful - and they come in male and female but you don't know which one you have until the flowers bloom. They're also said to be used for folk-medicinal purposes that aid in memory, and that kinda ties in with doing something in memoriam.

Interesting, and might look good on a hip.

ETA - I have one tattoo on my hip, and I'm very happy with the placement.

You know, it just seems like you're immortalizing this time period with him - and your success getting over him - with a symbol that will last forever.

I don't think he deserves to be immortalized on your skin forever because he was an assclown and you survived his assclownery. He simply doesn't deserve ANY real estate on your skin.

Rather than a symbol of successfully 'getting past' what he's done to you, how about instead a tattoo that celebrates a life lived well?

JMHO.


Be careful - that 'knight in shining armor' may very well be nothing more than an assclown wrapped in tin foil.

I have two tattoos (so far). One is very simple. It says, "surrender." It is inside my left wrist. It reminds me of how far I've come, in letting go of what I cannot control. (It also reminds me, on bad days, to do so.)

The other is on the inside of my right foot, shaped in an arc that follows the arch of my foot. It's a quote from a sermon made by Unitarian Universalist minister Francis C. Anderson, Jr., in very simple black "type." It describes how I feel about a a live lived well. It reads, "a living soul stands rooted and reaching" (It is all lower-case, with no punctuation.)

It reminds me to stay grounded, while continuing to reach for new experiences. I may add on to this with a plant with roots and leaves reaching upward, but haven't yet found the plant I want to use....

I also plan to have one of Picasso's peace doves added below my surrender tattoo....the colors of the dove go well with it, and because the message to "surrender" has brought me such peace, they complement one another very well.

So I finally got my tattoo. I went ahead and fixed my old tattoo that was on my hip from over 15 years ago. It is a heart with handcuffs hanging over it

On my other hip I picked the outline of a heart with the words "Proverbs 31:25" written on the edge. The verse is "She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."
