Think About It: Fresh Ink

InkI love subtle tattoos. The ones that you don’t notice at first glance. They’re private, and a little bit surprising.

When Benjy and I got married a couple of months ago, we decided to get matching tattoos similar to the lines in the bottom image above. The first ring we’ll get for one another, to signify our marriage. For each of our children we’ll add another band, like the rings of a tree.

This is the Viking symbol Inguz. It means “where there is a will, there is a way”

And last, but not least, my left wrist. It’s been a part of me since I was 16.

The best tattoos are the quiet ones. The ones that whisper instead of shout. The ones that are thoughtful and unexpected. The best tattoos aren’t really tattoos at all, they’re as seamless as a freckle, and as natural as can be.
