Those of you who know me, or who have seen me in bathers…or possibly at the pub….know that I have a couple of tattoos.
The first was acquired when I was about 21 from the Dragon Lady on Rundle St in Adelaide.
From memory I was hungover from a work Christmas party and went along with my boyfriend at the time and a friend from Uni. The tattoo is a japanese symbol which (I was told) means ‘different, special or to excel’.
There is of course every possibility it means wide load or special fried rice.
The second was acquired when I was about 28 from the Ink Pit on Anzac Highway in Adelaide.
From memory I was hungover (again!) and went along with Kate.
The tattoo is a swirly tribal design which was NOT put at the small of my back.
Some of you may be aware that I was considering having another done in commemoration of the recent North American adventure. The issue was what to get.
I was considering maple leaves and snowflakes. These are still very tempting.
After discussions with the great Kate, Robin and Ana a new plane has been hatched.
A compass. Pointing North. A celebration of the trip plus a symbol of direction.
Maybe I’ll get a snowflake and maple leaf (and a dragonfly?) incorporated into the design.
Now – where to put it.
Or – play pin the tattoo on the back – see below. Any suggestions (well, almost any) will be appreciated.
