Trees and Tattoos and a Mini Meme

I got my Christmas tree up. I am very happy to have it done. I like to look at it. It makes me feel really cheerful. and hungry, sinceI decorate it in candy and gingerbread. Beloved objected, at first, but she is glad its up now too.

Speaking of Beloved, its her birthday today. So, Happy Birthday to you! (In case she is sneaking a peek, which I know she does from time to time)

In other news, I am thinking of getting another tattoo. I have three already, all on my back.

The first one is a lotus shaped celtic knot it is on my lower back, approximately 4" from my rear end, if I were to guess location. I love it. It was my first tatoo and took 2 hour to do. Mostly because I am a baby and had to stop. I was only 18 at the time, and my ex finacee agreed to pay for it if I promised to never peirce my tongue. I agreed, because it was a good deal and if we ever broke up, I could get one anyway. For the record, I don't have one, and am glad I didn't get one. It worked out well.

My second and third ones I got on my last birthday, nearly a year ago. They are both Runes, and each of them are special to me. I choose them because I felt like I was at a new place in my life, and I wanted to remember it by them.

The two runes I chose were Perthro and Dagaz.

Perthro is literally interpreted as a Lot Cup or the Vagina. It represents knowledge of one's destiny, determining your path, and feminine mysteries

Dagaz is the sign of the Day or Dawn. It represents, awakening, awareness, the power of change directed by yoru own will, and transformation.

These were very important for me because I wanted to represent to myself the changes I had made over the few years between my first tatoo and then, and I wanted something to remind myself how beautiful it is to be a woman.

These two are stacked on my back, centered above my knot, on my spine. They are more up in the middle though, so I actually have to lift my shirt to show them. They are about 1.5" inches in height. Not very big, as fr as tatoos go, but very big for me.

I am thinking on what I want to get for my new one, and I am sure it will also be a runic symbol. They really resonate with me.

I would be interested to see what everyone's impressions of my personality are, since I usually relate my tatoos to my personality. It would be interesting to see.

Describe Alecya in three words. A mini Meme if you will.

Feminine. Masculine. Impressionable.

Alecya G said...

Wow. That's ambiguous. *is puzzled*

But I always do want to be alittle more masculine :)

I guess I should add I am not getting a tattoo based on what you guys tell me. I re-read my post and It hink it sounded like I was going to...Ack. Can't do that, these thigns are permanent ;)

sunshine said...

I only said masculine, because I remember the first post I ever read, and you wanted to be more "butch", that is why I said that, and that you are skilled in self defense. I have this vision in my head that you are very feminine looking.

It's your thing...do what you want to....I can't tell you.....What tattoooooooo : ) Ok, that way goofy, but it's late in the day and I LOVE my job.

Alecya G said...

Sunshine- oh, I wasn't being hatful. I am a bit of a contradiction anyway. And you're right, I am downright girly. THat pic I use on my profile, it really does look like me. Black hair, bow shaped lips and pale skin - everything. Well, I don't have that cool hood...

Fox - Why yes, I do! No, kidding. I normally wait until December, but this one is going to be so busy I knew it was thanksgiving weekend or never.

** for you both

Alecya G said...

See explanation above, Flash, drling. I normally don't either. Now or never.

*** anyway for such sweet words.

HistoryGeek said...

Sweet. Friendly. Playful.

I kind of imagine as a puppy at times (really a compliment of the highest sorts, I promise).

And, damn girl, a tattoo right on your spine. OW!

LB said...




any good? Like the tats, by the way.

Alecya G said...

Of course they're good, LB *
And one for you Spins * I think I have described myself as a puppy before. Very eager and excited. (please, puhleeeze lemme do a blog, like it? like it?)

I'll tell you the story of my tats sometime. I actually laughed when I got the last two, because he hit a ticklish spot on my back...LB. I am pretty fond of them. I'll have to find a pic of the big one i have. Maybe I'll take a pic of my back..hehe.

I think it's fair to say that no-one should ever, ever get a tattoo based on what bloggers tell them.

*mind boggles*

three words: heartfelt, brave, lefty

and happy birthday to your Beloved!


red one said...

I'm not sure if heartfelt is actually a word you can use about people, but I'm having it anyway - to mean that you do and say things that are heartfelt, or in a heartfelt way.


Alecya G said...

I think I posted above - I wouldnever get a tatoo on what you all tought I should. They're a little too permanent for that.

I was just curious what all of you thought of me, and the tatoo was what broughtup the idea....

Charby said...

I like the idea of you being puppyish or kittenish too!
And its a bit late but happy birthday to Beloved!
