"At the back of my neck is a portrait of my favourite flower species, Lilium Lancifollium aka tiger lily. On my left rib, I had skura/cherry blossom trees tattooed; it was my first tattoo gift from my fiance. He designed and inked it on me; only he knows what inspired that artwork. The 5 clear stars on my left wrist represents my immediate family members. The small black stars are accompanying elements.
On my right wrist, 'S' represents my initial and also it explains my existence. The intertwined red and black stars are meant to reflect me and my partner. Lastly, on my left ankle lies a cluster of snowflakes. These ice crystals are beautiful and it is next to impossible for two snowflakes to be exactly alike. To me, it represents all life forms and existence. We are all created with our own uniqueness."

"Most of my tattoos are religious in significance."
"Each marked a significant time in my life. This one says, "protège-moi de mes désirs". It's a Placebo song meaning protect me from what I want". I felt it was appropriate because at different parts of your life you want things that you maybe shouldn't have. There is always someone or something that isn't good for you so hopefully there's some sort of refrain from it.

And I got "surrender" because you're in control of everything so you just have to let go sometimes. I have a fourth one which is also my twitter name, that one is personal. " [source: Tongue in Chic]
