So far I have 2 "groups" of tattoos and both of them have important meaning for me and I thought and designed them for a very long time. I have always seen piercings, tattoos, etc. as a form of art and find them to be an intimate part of ones body and soul.
Down my spine I tattooed my name but with each syllable in a different written script. I treated this as a spell and a reminder for myself of the characteristics that I wish to uphold in my life. I was able to achieve this by using each syllable as the first syllable in a word in the same script. For example, the first syllable in my name is "khur" and I used Akkadian Cuneiform so I looked for a word in this same language that began with the same syllable.
You should never be afraid of doing anything that you feel is a way to express yourself, as long as no harm comes to anyone, and as long as you feel comfortable as well. Some forms of expression are not for anyone but once you realize yours, that beauty will shine and others will appreciate it as well!
Unfold your wings and take off into the sky
Before you're burned, become the sun
Blow, oh wind... It guides you into the sky
Before your whole self is taken away
