Each of my tattoo's means something seriously important to me. I have 2 now, and a few in the works.
My first tattoo, it's Japanese (and chinese) kanji meaning "Wolf" one of my two spiritual guides. I tattoo'd this as a reminder that I'll always have someone on my shoulder
My 2nd tattoo (not a very good image) is of the symbol for the video game Final Fantasy 7. I've played that game way too many times and it really gave me insight into human behavior, psyche, and just, I can't describe it, it means a lot to me. It was a magnificent story.
I'm getting more, kanji for "Raven" my other spiritual guide, tattoo's is an addictive business!!
