Epiphany

It didn't really hurt that much.  It hurt a little more than the epilator I've been using.  It hurt about the same as a too-long-delayed tooth-cleaning but not nearly as much as when they slip with the pick and jab your gum.  The noise was not nearly as bad as a dentist's drill.  The feeling was so different from a doctor's shot that I can't judge which would count as worse: the vibration made it feel like a dozen small needles going in very shallowly instead of one long needle poking deep.  It was over in about 15 minutes and it didn't/doesn't hurt afterward.

I got a tattoo on my inner left wrist.  My very first tattoo.  It's about an inch long, about 1/2 inch high.

My view: a stylized eye, a dragon's eye, a cat's eye, with overtones of directional arrow and scythe and even wish-bone.  Most of the meaning is to be awake, to be aware of... well.. everything.  All possibilities.  But a dragon is age and wisdom, so part of that is to also to weigh and judge the possibilities.  Do they take me where I want to go?

Opposite view: I think it looks a bit like a person in a half-canopied boat, a symbol of journey. Maybe a little more of scythe than the other way. What would you say?

I would love to know some of what you see in it, sometime.

Waves rolling into a beach (that's the first thing I thought of) or a bird flying or fish swimming. if I tilt my head to the left, I see a standing penguin or a dolphin jumping out of the water. Tilting to the right, I see a plant or branch, or even an ear of corn with the husk partly removed.
