This is a response to the Daily Prompt’s “Tattoo…You?“, which asked:
Do you have a tattoo? If so, what’s the story behind your ink? If you don’t have a tattoo, what might you consider getting emblazoned on you skin?
I don’t have a tattoo, nor do I think I ever will, but if I ever thought about getting one or two someday, one of them would have to be the Triquetra on the wrist. The left wrist, to be specific; something like this:
I would choose this because 1; I love Charmed. It’s the first TV series that I loved, and probably will love for the rest of my life; 2. Triquetra is a Celtic symbol for Trinity or three, which in Charmed, as we all know means Power of Three. The circle around the triangle is what bonds them together, like a signification of its unity. It also signifies the infinite and eternity, a connection that cannot, or isn’t easy to, be broken. I love this because it doesn’t just represents Charmed, but also the next symbol I wanted etched on my left hand, near the thumb.
The photo above was of me and my hand. That’s not a real tattoo, just one that I drew using a red Sharpie. If I’m ever going to get inked, I’d choose this one as well, because it represents me and my siblings—Royals—at least our names—King, Queen, Jack. I want a small crown on my left hand to go with the Triquetra (but in white ink, unlike the traditional color) so that I would always remember our bond, no matter where we go in life.
I know I can choose a more elaborate design but if I’m ever going to get one or two, I’d rather choose something that holds a special meaning to me; not some random swirlies or words that someone else picked just because it will look cute. Then again, maybe I don’t need to have it inked in me because I know that it will stay with me forever, even after the ink faded on my skin.
