My Crab and Shell

To get the ball rolling on my new NeoPagan Ink blog I thought I'd post my own latest ink. I've always been fascinated by spirals, they are dearer to me than the pentacle, and the crab is my zodiac sign. This tattoo was done by Ken at Sundown Tattoo and Body Piercing in Springfield, Missouri, USA. (I would include his last name but it's not on the card and I honestly don't remember.)

Edited in September to add: I never noticed it before but my crab is missing a leg. Shit, shit, shit, shit and fucking shit. How did I let this happen? And how did I not notice 'til now? HOW!? I wonder if I could get it fixed free of charge?

EDITED again to add: I've decided to leave this tattoo as it is. Why? Because it has 7 regular legs and two claws. And my birthday is 7/2. I could have planned it! I didn't and that's what pissed me off. But I like it now.

I never noticed it before but now, months and months later, I see that my crab is missing a freaking leg! How did I let this happen? HOW!? Shit, shit, shit, shit and fucking shit.

The tatto is a wonderful one, with or without all the crab's legs, and maybe it will cool down your anger that seven is a great number, magickally speaking! There's this cool page about it:
Process this in a positive way or you'll start hating looking at this piece of art and this would be a pity.

Funny, my niece bought something that costed her 7,77$, right after that we watched a movie where the mai's character was 77 years old and now you talk about it.

Hmm, I hadn't looked at that way. Funny, my birth month is July.

Nydia said...

July? Another seven? Hmmm... I'd kep this crab just like that.

Yeah, I'm thinking I might keep it this way.
