I am now a canvas by ohheartbreak I am now a canvas by ohheartbreak
The quote is "I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun." It is my favorite quote from Pride and Prejudice - the book, not the movie. The whole quote is:
"I can fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."
It starts slightly above my bra strap and goes down towards my lower back. It's not on my spine, but slightly off-center to the left.
Probably took about an hour and hurt like hell but I'm in love with it.
Thanks Chuco from Fat Cat Tattoos in Sacramento, California.

I'm looking to get another tattoo in the near future. Hopefully a winged serpent, like the Mayan/Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, along with two butterflies and the quote "You will find me in the next life, if not in this one." I want them on my back or possibly side but don't know how to incorporate them with my current tattoo if I get them on my back. Any ideas?

You're tattoo is gorgeous and what was originally what drew me to look at the picture but then after I read it I started looking at your room. I know its weird, but it amazes me how girls everywhere are kind of alike, in some sense. Posters and pics on the wall and I have that very same paint sitting up on my dresser. it just rolled me

That is my favorite book (and movie). I love your tattoo. I love the idea and the irony of the words with the placement of it. Great idea!
