The Power of Three

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.

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.

KTHXBYE.
