My parents always said that I could get a tattoo when I'm 30, but that it will kill them.
So I'm really not ever going to get one... plus I already have a scar that is worth a million tats.
That scar does come into play here, what if I were to incorporate the scar into the tattoo? Make it part of a ribbon that runs around my body. Or even to write words along the scar as a border. Just something to make it pretty.
I have good feelings towards my Finnish background and definitely relate to the term sisu. I love abstract designs including the ones that I have saved from the corners of notebook pages and the backs of 3x5 cards.
All in all, I would want a tattoo to be pretty much non-visible in daily apparel, which mostly defeats the purpose. Or I could go with an exact copy of the picture on the left and never talk to my parents again.
