The Question of the Week is posted every Sunday and will consist of a question followed by my answer and explanation to the same. Some questions will only require a simple answer that could potentially be followed by an explanation. Many questions will be writer oriented, but not all. Everyone is encouraged to answer in the comments and discussions/follow up questions are more than welcome!
What is your favorite tattoo/tatoos?
Hands down my favorite tattoo(s) is this combination.
All of my tattoos refer to Final Fantasy VII (and the planned future ones will as well). The larger symbol is the Tree of Life, which I’ve spoken extensively about in numerous essays, and the VII is, um, a VII; no explanation needed there 🙂
The VII on top of the Tree reminds of this minimalist art of FFVII.
The long “nave” beneath the VII and the windows along the side are a shadow of the shape of the Tree to my ridiculous mind. I of course see it, but that’s because I also know the significance the Tree of Life has to the symbolism of the story.
I currently have five out of the seven tattoos I need to get. The other three (besides the two above) are a 7 on my other (left) wrist, an ankh on my chest (the same one Sephiroth has on his armor…so not just any old ankh) and the Midgard Serpent around my left ankle.
The remaining two are the words “Ne me mori facias” beneath the 7, and one wing on my right shoulder and down my arm. Yes, I love Final Fantasy VII that much.
What’s your favorite tattoo/tattoos? What future ones are you planning? How many do you have and (if you’d like to share) what’s their significance?
I look forward to your answers in the comments!
