"Now, everyday at the same time I will think of you. And everyday at the same time, you will think about me. Never let anyone tell you your rose is ordinary, for only she has tamed you, and only you are special to her, thus, she is unique to your heart." - La Petit Prince.
There are a great many reasons why I love foxes; the words above, spoken by a fox in a story, can only be one. But the foxes in stories are unlike other creatures in the way they are portrayed as so many different things; demons, angels, beasts, lovers and even as polite well mannered characters with a devious streak. Whether you speak of the character from "the golden bird" or the title folk in "the fox and the brothel" no two foxes are quite alike.
I have wanted a tattoo for many years, but the circumstances for such just weren't available, but when I this week finally got my tattoo; a fox was the obvious choice for me (for more reasons than I list, but I don't feel like pouring my black heart out). I had drawn the concept for the tattoo over six months before I got it, so I knew what is was getting into; sort of. As much as one can; because god they hurt. A lot. But in the end it was worth it, so I'm taking especially good care of it. (Not that you shouldn't anyway - I'm just professing my love for the tattoo.)
Either way, I'm just excited and felt the need to share it. If anyone has any tattoo stories, considerations, thoughts or questions; speak now or forever hold your peace.
