So these are my tattoos. So far. They are both located on the inside of the forearm. I never thought that I would be the type who would get tattoos. Then one day I was told that some of the symbols and images that I have a habit of drawing on my body should be there in a more permanent way. Who told me that? Spirit of course. These are the first 2 of a few that I will be getting. They are unique and totally my design, although the tattoo artist can now say that the images belong to her because she has put them on my body, which is her canvas. I don't really care. It is not like they will be useful to anyone else who puts them on their bodies. Not in the same way they are useful to me. You see, they are not just images. They access certain energies that then emit from my being.
That is why I have not had any of my power animals tattooed on my person. I don't want to anchor them when in ethereal format they can move around and leave me and then come back to me energetically. But these ones actually activate certain energies withing me. Those energies then get put to use and when they are done they become dormant once again until the next activation.
I know that this sounds hinky for some. I don't care. The proof is in the pudding.
I am happy with them and that is what counts. Anyone who has a negative opinion about them can keep that opinion to themselves because I don't need their approval at all. As my eldest daughter says, "At fifty years old, Dad, I would think that you know what you are doing and that this is not just a phase you are going through." Gotta love that logic!
