Welcome to the scattered thoughts of a haunted writer with too little time. I can't guarantee anything profound or particularly innovative here, but I hope I can share my journey and commiserate with other authors, artists, and anyone else who knows the manic joy of chaos and creativity.

Is it a mid-life crisis thing? Or perhaps a need to rebel? Or maybe just an urge to take control of some small part of my bod? For whatever reason, I've been aching to get a tattoo. The big question is, what do I want to etch into my ivory skin forever? Of course a nice little celtic design would graft my love of Ireland to my shoulder for all eternity. Maybe a spunky little fairy. Of course horses are another passion, but I'm not sure I want just a horse-shaped stamped on my shoulder blade unless it's something really interesting. What about something literary? I considered a wonderful "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good" or something like that, but I think an iconic image would be more up my alley for this purpose. Or maybe something ghosty.
Here's the gig:
I need a great idea.
It has to be small. I don't want it to swarm across my back. Just a small little accent on my shoulder blade.
It can be color or monochrome
I'm asking my blogging buddies for help...HELP!
If you have a suggestion, post it in the comments along with a link to the image. OR email me with your suggestion and paste the image right in the email. I'm open to original work by any of my illustrator buddies as well.
