Why: Because I'm a Sag and I was only 18. I got a black
rose much later. I got it because a black rose is always a symbol for
anarchy or subrosa, which means "beneath the rose." In the Catholic
church anything that was "subrosa" was something you didn't talk about.
I'm a Pagan and I've always had an on-again off-again relationship with
the church. It seemed like the best way to describe the feelings I had.
I would also like to get a Celtic arm band around, but I don't have the
money for that.
ETC: It doesn't hurt as much as you think
it would, except where you get out to where the skin is really tender.
Also, especially for women, if you get a tattoo on your shoulder blade
or on your ankle, it really hurts because there's a bone right
underneath and the needle hitting it really hurts.
