I Feel Symmetrical Again.

Yesterday we spent the entire day at my BFF Michelle and her hubby's for a tattoo party. Our good friend Derrick arrived about 1 pm and tattooed almost until midnight, the rock star.

Here's my latest addition:
A compass rose, sometimes called a windrose, is a figure on a compass, map, nautical chart or monument used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions — North, East, South and West - and their intermediate points. Older sources sometimes use the term "compass star", or stella maris ("star of the sea"), to refer to the compass rose. Compass rose tattoos have been around for hundreds of years. For most of that time, this design was the domain of sailors who wore their tats for a number of reasons. Among the most prominent, seamen believed that a compass rose tat would bring them good luck and ensure that they made it back to shore alive.

Michelle and Jerrime both got outlines for new pieces:
Swallow with ovarian cancer ribbon
Baby crawling. Symbolizes life and it's journey.
Barking Dog (covered up the initials I'd had there for 28yrs). Then the light bulb was added to symbolize my idealism, bright ideas, putting 'light' on every situation. Ha
