Be Happy Tattoo -Inked- by pikku-hiiri Be Happy Tattoo -Inked- by pikku-hiiri
new tattoo. love love love it. there's masses of meaning behind this tattoo, the most obvious of which is the "Be Happy"... be happy is probably the only thing my dad has ever really asked of me, and he's right, nothing is worth anything if you aren't happy. the fleur-de-lis is my reminder of france, where i recently spent 3 and a half months studying, and where i learnt a lot, the least of which being the language. apparantly the fleur-de-lis is also a symbol of flames... which is awesome to a pyro like me =P the feather is just because i love feathers, always have, and they represent freedom to me.

inked by Nick at Freedom Tattooz in Ipswich, UK. and credit for the feather design goes to :iconchibinezu: ... thanks :)

Your tattoo is really beautiful, and the meaning also.
I love the way "be happy" is wirtten in the feather.

I really can't believe I just found this! I am getting my tattoo in less then a month, and it will be the words "Be Happy" on my shoulder.
It has such a powerful meaning to myself. I love that someone else has this! You're tattoo is beautiful, and amazing!
