littlesquigglylines said: what’s that tattoo of :O
On my right foot I have the Buddhist mantra OM MANI PADME HUM which can be broken into these parts:
OM - Generosity: helps with Pride / Ego
MA - Ethics: helps with Jealousy / Lust for Entertainment
NI - Patience: helps with Passion / Desire
PAD - Diligence: helps with Ignorance / Prejudice
ME - Renunciation: helps with Greed / possessiveness
HUM - Wisdom: helps with Aggression / hatred
After I got into a fistfight I had it tattooed onto my foot to remind me to watch my temper (mostly got it for the HUM). I promised myself if I lost my temper again, for whatever reason, and reacted with violence that I would get the tattoo re-done. I figured it’d help remind me to watch myself on all facets of life. I haven’t lost my temper and resorted to violence since I got the tattoo which was 12 years ago and counting.
The tattoo on my right foot is an evil eye and is there for protection purposes and also as a fond reminder of the evil eyes I grew up with as a result of my dad living in Turkey and my mother living in Morocco for a time. I have an evil eye above my bedroom door for the same reasons.
So *METAL* with my chonies and poopdog.
Kay dog wasn’t doing so well at 18 years of age. His pain was getting unbearable and his lymphoma was so bad he had trouble breathing cause his tumours were so large.
We just finished feeding him a greasy fried chicken thigh (his favourite food) and had him euthanized. He went peacefully. He was a good boy.
Guess where I am. #TucsonRollerDerby
I’ll diversify your services. Hubba Hubba!
Feeling pretty good about myself today. I’m flexing but yay what a difference lifting heavy things for a month makes.
My mom found this. She said it reminded her of me so now it’s hanging on my wall. I LOVE IT.
