Tattoo You

If you think I didn't get a new tattoo last night, you're wrong! I've had the design for nearly two years, having been inspired to get another tattoo when I suddenly found myself single (after nearly 10 years) two years ago.

Initially, I was full of rage, and wanted the word "Emancipation" tattooed really prominently on my body somewhere - like those big block letters across my stomach - but years of experience have taught me that it's never a good idea to impulse over 1.) flame-wars online and 2.) tattoos.

About 18 months ago I found a guy online who specializes (and guarantees his work) in Japanese kanjii. This is kanjii for a word called "jiyuu," which means "freedom, liberty." I think it's such a nicer way of saying "emancipation."

What do you think?
