HNT - Tolkien

"All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost ..."

I got new ink Tuesday. This has been a long time coming, but I finally knew what needed to be done, and it wasn't what I thought needed to be done. In addition to the Tolkien quote, I also had Alan's rose touched up and recolored (you can read the story [HERE]. It was time to move forward - to accept that even the most beautiful moments in life can have a painful thorn ...

I love the placement of your new tattoo and the tattoo artist did a great job touching up the rose!

Happy HNT!

Love the tattoo and the placement. It did make me immediately wonder about logistics of healing regarding bra straps because I'm a weirdo like that. hehehe

I think the Ink job is spectacular. I think you are spectacular. And I also think that if you just stopped for a second and took a deep breath and looked at your past, you would be amazed at all that you have overcome.

If you are going to hang on to words, hang on to these: "You are far more superior than you think you are!"

That is truly beautiful.... As someone who loves ink as much as I do, when it's meaningful to the person it is that much better.

A beautiful quote to go on a beautiful woman! Glad you were able to get it done as well as the touch up.
Happy HNT!

Absolutely beautiful.

You know, I had sort-of forgotten the poem from Lord of the Rings - but it's such a great element . . . and damn, this is a cool tattoo. Thanks for sharing :-)

“No, the journey does not end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it. White shores, and beyond. A far green country under a swift sunrise”

A fitting tribute to the late J.R.R. Tolkein, and I think fitting for you as well Dana!
