My tattoo is for myself. Of course, at the time there was also a hope that it would impress either Michelle or Jen.
The tattoo itself is of a version of the Mayan yax glyph that I came across in a book one day. At the time I was studying archaeology (Maya - natch). Also, among its many meanings, yax means green which is my last name and it refers to the centre of the 4 cardinal directions (ie centered). Made a lot of sense to me. FTR, I knew it was time to get the tat when it seemed like a bad idea when I was drunk.
