I met Sara on the 36th Street subway platform in Brooklyn last month during the late afternoon rush hour commute.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for words and this tattoo looked poetic:
Sara filled me in. She has three tattoos and this passage "spoke to her". She wanted something religious for her 30th birthday.
This is an excerpt (verse 4) from Psalm 37 in the Bible.
The verse reads "Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart" [King James Version]. Sara changed the thee and thine to read me and my, respectively, making the verse more personal.
This was tattooed by Alex Franklin at Brooklyn Ink in Bay Ridge. Work from Brooklyn Ink (and much from Alex) can be seen on this Tattoosday label here.
Thanks to Sara for sharing her source of inspiration with us here on Tattoosday!
