meanings behind the tattoos:

there are a lot of reasons why i want the wolf paws. wolves represent survial and instinct to me, i'd like to think that i have to strong will to survive and they will remind me to always follow my instincts, living by instinct usually leads you in the right direction, it is the purest way of living its not tainted by doubt or others views.there is a native american legend that wolves originally lived in the depths of the ocean. i love the ocean and Cancer is a water sign so i'm connected to it by birth. the paw prints would be black, because there is another legend that in Earth's beginning there were four wolf brothers:Blue wolf, White wolf, Gray wolf, and Black wolf. Black wolf controlled the night, i've always felt closer with night than day because i love the moon (except instead of howling at it, i stare). wolves have fierce spirits, while i'm not really like that overall i will fight to the death to protect someone i love


eye of horus: it's a symbol of protection, among other things. horus is the egytpian sun god, the sun can be considered the opposite of the moon& i'm connected to the moon so i guess this is a case of opposites attracting. althought the mirror image of the eye represents the moon and there are stories about it relating to moon cycles. one of my favorite egyptian gods is Isis, and she happens to be Horus's mother so the tattoo would have a kind of connection with her too. the reason horus is represent by one eye is because he lost an eye fighting Set to avenged his fathers death,i beleive in fighting for the people i love and the tattoo would be visible proof of that in a way.
i want an ankh connected to the eye or just near it. it represnts life and is connected is Isis (horus's mother) it is also protective and used to be considered an amulet that ensured a long life.


and the last tattoo, a dreamcatcher. its a symbol of my native american heritage. its getting late so instead of rambling on i will use a legend to explain what the tattoo means to me

"Long ago when the word was sound, an old Lakota spiritual leader was on a high mountain and had a vision. In his vision, Iktomi, the great trickster and searcher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider. Iktomi spoke to him in a sacred language. As he spoke, Iktomi the spider picked up the elder's willow hoop which had feathers, horsehair, beads and offerings on it, and began to spin a web. He spoke to the elder about the cycles of life, how we begin our lives as infants, move on through childhood and on to adulthood. Finally we go to old age where we must be taken care of as infants, completing the cycle.

But, Iktomi said as he continued to spin his web,in each time of life there are many forces, some good and some bad. If you listen to the good forces, they will steer you in the right direction. But, if you listen to the bad forces, they'll steer you in the wrong direction and may hurt you. So these forces can help, or can interfere with the harmony of Nature. While the spider spoke, he continued to weave his web.

When Iktomi finished speaking, he gave the elder the web and said, The web is a perfect circle with a hole in the center. Use the web to help your people reach their goals, making good use of their ideas, dreams and visions. If you believe in the great spirit, the web will catch your good ideas and the bad ones will go through the hole.

The elder passed on his vision onto the people and now many Indian people have a dream catcher above their bed to sift their dreams and visions. The good is captured in the web of life and carried with the people, but the evil in their dreams drops through the hole in the web and are no longer a part of their lives. It is said the dream catcher holds the destiny of the future."

i have in my possesion for the first time in a great longggg while,a green substance that pulls people together like a gravitational force. eyes slant and tensions subside as it snakes through the blood making surroundings dreamlike and conversations fluid. i smoked alone in the woods yesteday during the rainstorm and got throughly soaked and chilled.

it was freezing today, theres something to be said for cold weather like plush sweaters and desire for body heat but after a(very)short time it makes me want to hibernate and stirs a craving for the bahamas: exploring tomb-like sunken ships and stalking sharks under bathwarm seas letting my blood fill with nitrogen.and in the evenings grinning at the accents of the bartenders when they ask my name and where i'm from while i finish off long island iced teas and suck on the ice. i would like to live there someday, maybe working at a scuba shop spending everyday under the ocean and sun.

finalement:friday night,i will be at the webster to see the misfits and balzac, just before halloween.perfect timing, i hope they play Last Caress and American Nightmare then i will be content. i am seriously impatient for the dark, hot theatre with speakers that will shake my insides with bass& seductively evil lyrics, and for the sweating crowds of kids whos hearts are all beating in unison to the same songs flailing and moshing possesed by the music..music that posseses hearts, there should be no other kind.music is the sound of millions of glimmering sound particles coming together in a soft rising explosion, it is orgasmic.

Subject:text and quotes from on the road live inside my heart. jack k

"I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling. Ecstacy, even, I felt, with flases of sudden remembrance,and feeling sweaty and drowsy I felt like sleeping and dreaming in the grass" - Jack Kerouac

ramble about one of my climbing coaches, ignore it.

mike amuses me, with his altoids tin full of tobacco. when my lungs were still under abuse i would carry my cigarettes and stashes of weed inside empty (peppermint) altoids tins as well. i like his piercings, a hoop in his nose, two piercings in the left ear and about ten in the right ear with white strands of beads dangling from each hole.hes native american as well, trained in ritual and knows genuine medicine men still working in tribes, mostly in a fight against the rampant alcoholism on reservations. he is a person who stirs up things inside of me awe and curitosity and respect.

aura picture:
the main color was amber/yellow/golden sort of hue
in general people with yellow auras:"Yellows are the most fun-loving, free-spirited, energetic, and childlike personalities in the aura spectrum. Yellows are wonderful, sensitive, optimistic beings, whose life purpose is to bring joy to people, to have fun, and to help heal the planet.
Yellows can either be very shy and sensitive, or they can be the life of the party. These playful characters have a great sense of humor. They love to laugh and to make others laugh. Yellows believe life is to be enjoyed.They like to live life freely and spontaneously. With a perpetual smile on their face, they remind people to not take themselves or their problems too seriously.
Yellows would prefer not to work at all, unless their work was fun, playful, or creative. They love nature, and often have concerns for the survival of wildlife and the environment. Dogs are very drawn to Yellows and often become their best friends."

amber:individual strength and courage.vitality, vigor, good health and excitement
yellow:Relates to the spleen and life energy.It is the color of awakening, inspiration, intelligence and action shared, creative, playful, optimistic, easy-going.
gold:When seen within the aura, it says that the person is being guided by their highest good. It is divine guidance. Protection, wisdom, inner knowledge, spiritual mind, intuitive thinker.

the deep clear red could mean:Grounded, realistic, active,strong will-power, survival-oriented.Powerful, energetic, competitive, sexual, passionate
A Red Overlay is usually added to the outer bands of the aura early on in life because the person felt a need for protection
