Well, I said I'd post pictures when they were healed. So here ya go, my new tattoos:

This tattoo is actually in memory of the little girl I was a nanny for when I first moved back to Indiana. When I met her, she was 5 and had just started Kindergarten. Now, the thing about Anna is, when I met her, she was dependent on an oxygen tank and a trach. Anna was born with multiple birth defects, including an extremely rare form of dwarfism, partial deafness (hence the sign language), poor eyesight, early puberty, and so on. As she got older, her lungs got worse and she had to be placed on a mobile ventilator. She was still a little terror, as girls can be, but she was also the sweetest little girl ever. When she was 7 years old, her parents were told they had a matter of months left with her before her heart finally gave out. For comparison, the oldest person on record with her condition was 12. Unfortunately, her mother and I just couldn't get along after a few years and I moved out (it's a long story, if you want to know I'll fill you in, just not right now). I missed her horribly. This past March she was in the hospital again because she started having seizures (my mom's a nurse at the children's hospital so she kept me informed). I went to visit her, gave her a bracelet I made, told her I missed her. She went into the hospital again in July. Sadly this time she didn't leave. A little over 2 months shy of her 13th birthday her heart finally gave up. And now it's getting hard to type, so if you want to ask any questions about her or her charity work (yes, she did charity work) I'll answer them, I'm just having trouble collecting my thoughts now.

And now for something completely different:


a brand new shiny nickle goes to the person who knows what that is (and yes, it is actually straight on my neck, it's just really hard to get a good picture of for some reason)
