i've been thinking...

really hard about a tattoo.  my dear friend casey got this a couple of years ago and i've been in LOVE!


the picture doesn't even do it justice, it's FANTASTIC.  i mean i love it so much, she told me to get the same one!  but i refuse.  so i've done some searching today and found one like this....
i don't love the comb, but i do love the scissors and the swirls and the flowers.  i just realized the swirls are hair, and i don't love that.  but i do LOVE the scissors.  i've had this tattoo idea in my mind ever since casey got her's and every spring when it shows it's beauty my heart melts.  

i've always thought i would like "walk by faith" on my foot, but then i'm unsure of just black wording and just have only letters.  so...then i thought of a peacock feather.  i have a love of them and i just find so much beauty and funk in them.  so i found this..
i think this is SUPER cute, but i would want it more whimsical and flow-e (i cannot think how to spell, so yeah i did hyphenate and e)


but i like the more greens of the other.

overall, my heart wants a beautiful piece of art on it's foot, but i just can't decide 100%.  so i'll keep thinking and pondering until i KNOW it's perfect.  i'm currently leaning towards scissors though.  thoughts?

I like the peacock feather. I also like walk by faith & think you could add some swirls and such to it. I think no to the scissors. I think get something that represents you and you do love the peacock & ur lord. Maybe combine walk by faith with the feather?

I googled & found this about it...

I would totally wait until you know it's perfect. It will last forever!
