1 year ago tomorrow, my sister and I got our first tattoos together :)
Before this, I had always thought about getting one, but could never think of anything I wanted permanently on my body so I sort of brushed it aside not thinking about it too much. Whenever tattoos did come up in conversation with friends, I always said that if anything I would choose something that represents the close relationship I have with my sister. So one day out of the blue, she calls me up and asks me if I would mind that she got a tattoo that represented our sisterhood – I of course said go for it – and that I would get one with her! We thought about it for a while and settled on the infinity symbol (which represents Eternity, Forever or Neverending). We agreed that each tattoo would include the symbol, but reflect our own tastes. I chose a more simplistic, all black tattoo on my upper back and she decided to go for a bit of color and had a peacock feather incorporated in to her symbol.
One of my felt brooches is actually inspired by the peacock feather in her design!
I would love to get another one, and make it chemistry-related … I know, I know – You’re thinking “What a dumb idea! Really? Chemistry!? Geek … Why would you want that on your body!?” But I don’t think you understand how much I love chemistry: I have already dedicated 5 years of my life studying it and plan on getting my Ph.D. in the subject and will most likely work in the field for the rest of my life … Science will always be a big part of who I am, and I would love to keep that with me – Now I just have to pick a favorite chemical structure … :)
