My new tattoo

I wanted to start the new year with a tattoo that meant something to me. I am not the kind of person who gets tattooes just to be getting them. They hurt like hell and there has to be a very special reason why I get them.

This one is a raven sitting on an inverted pentacle.

In my beliefs, the inverted pentacle does not mean anything evil, bad or “of the devil.” It means that I am in the stage of my life where I go within myself to battle the inner demons and shadows long before they cause problems later. I am in touch with both sides of my Self: the dark and light.

You must become friends with both to be Whole.

The raven is my totem animal. In certain religions and beliefs, the raven (and crow) represent mystery knowledge and magick. (Both of which I strive to wrap my life around.)
