Tat 2 U

I turned 56 years old this year, thereby surpassing the age that my father was when he died.  To commemorate the occasion, I went and did something that I've wanted to do for a very long time.

I got a tattoo.

The reason it took so long was because I didn't know what I wanted.  I wanted one that represented how I felt, so I designed one myself.

The colors represent the rainbow.

The two figures represent the continual and elusive pursuit of our dreams.

The central figure is the sun...or the core of what I hold to be true.

The obvious question is...where?

I had it put on my right shoulder...and yes, it hurt.

(To answer the second obvious question.)
