My first tattoo was done today (July 21, 2011). I had been wanting to do it for a while. It's backwards from the mirror of course, but this is it people! It's the Gryffindor crest, which looks a lot like my clan's crest (Clan Farquharson) and so above it I had Rod write the clan motto, "Fide et Fortitudine" (Faith and Fortitude), which I think goes along with being a Gryffindor. :3
Thanks, JKR, for contributing so much to my development as a person. Your books changed me for the better, and the lessons I learned at Hogwarts will stay with me forever. Carving your story into my skin still doesn't fully express how deeply it's carved into my heart. ♥
Done by Rod at Vanity Tattoo, Roselle. Took about 3 hours.
