Need some creativity...

Hey yall. I am the first to admit that I am NOT a creative person at all!  I am an analytical person all the way. So, I am asking yall for some ideas!  I am 112 days clean now. I want to get a tattoo that symbolizes recovery. Can be a pic or a quote...just any ideas yall have. My daughter thought of 2. "One day at a time" and "Refuse to Sink" with a pic of an anchor. Do yall have any other ideas?  Please don't say the Phoenix. My biggest fear in the world is a bird!  I run from them so don't think I could handle a pic of one on my body!  Lol. Thanks my angels!

How about the anchor with The Serenity - Refuse to Sink? Your ship has sailed, and your on it. But it has to be significant to you.

I have 17 and counting! Getting a gorgeous DDM piece on my back next! I can't wait! I have 400+ tat pics on my profile that you can look through. Ink is art and every tat is special. If you find something you LOVE tweak it and make it personally and uniquely yours! Every tat tells a story! Be true to yourself and take your time!!

I am a huge fan of tattoos and body piercing-- I think they all contribute to our identity And beauty.  My favorite style is Japanese.  I am planning in getting a lotus flower when all is said and done.  I pasted a quote about the lotus:

The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the waters surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower.

In Buddhism and Hinduism it is often used as a symbol of rebirth.

Good luck !

Phoenix - that is a good idea. I never knew that about a lotus. I am still trying to decide what I want to do but I will post a pic as soon as I get it done. Thanks!
