Beautiful New Tattoo!

My friend, whom I will call Persuasion for the purposes of this blog, got this beautiful infinity symbol tattoo weeks ago. I took this photo when she came over for dinner while I was at my parents house in Tennessee on December 18, 2008. Persuasion's tattoo is delicate and strong at the same time. Really lovely and a new interpretation of the theme! I love the way the line fades, allowing the eye to make the connection. The design is asymmetrical but perfectly balanced. Of course I dig the placement too--that between the shoulder blades look is just gorgeous!

I think this is an appropriate last post for 2008 because it ends this year of blogging on a beautiful note--the beauty of the design and the beauty of friendship, the shared experience, the joy of telling you about it, and the celebration of body art. I tell you, seeing this tattoo and the designs Capt. Obvious is considering are making me want to have mine embellished! (Yes, Captain Obvious is getting tattooed in 2009. Just you wait!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Love to All!

Its more a 'mobius strip' type tattoo, than an 'infinity'.

Hm. Well, I disagree, but whatever floats your boat.

Infinity, clearly.

Happy New Year!
