More mental images - tattoos- and some other things

Before I start painting these pictures, I want to say that the last half my work day was a rather unpleasant one, not because of work but because I had a battle going on in my head -an agrument is no where near as harsh- fortunately I won and indoing so have remembered a few things that help me keep my confidence:

1) There is one measure by which I am perfect .. I am perfect at being me, no one else can do a better job at that than I can
2) No one has any rights. None what-so-ever ...that I will explain at some point I'm sure, but it is a very powerful statement to me, since it is also a paradox by nature
3) Do not ask "Why", it is a very dangerous question to which there is only 1 real answer and that is "Because"

I am trying to stall a little bit here, these images are images that I may eventually have tattooed on myself (I currently don't have any form of body art on me) ...and once I share these images you may see a reason I'm hesitant ... I just don't want them to become a fad and lose meaning ...

Okay, clear your mind and imagine a sword, a sword that is point down, and burning not like it is in a fire, but the source of the fire, the full length of the blade is wrapped in flames licking along the blade... this sword runs down my spine, and holding the sword is a phoenix, wings spread in flight wrapping forward over my shoulders it's head on the back of my neck.

.... not exactly a common image that I've seen ...and I don't think it should be..

The other image is that of a fireball or sun placed over my chest, mostly done in the light blue and white of a flame that burns with great intensity with some cooler red and orange flames intertwined...

Somehow I feel a little foolish sharing those, but I guess that just means I'm not completely ready to wear them yet...

sounds big, painful and expensive, but also beautiful.
