Friday Confessions - Hunger Games (Mockingjay) Tattoo Pic!


I must confess...
  • I REALLY got a tattoo
  • it is REALLY of a fictional bird
  • and I REALLY love it!
 The bird is a mockingjay. It's a figment of author Suzanne Collins imagination and a symbol she uses in her Hunger Games series to represent strength, survival, and freedom. I had been wanting a bird tattoo for a while and knew that I didn't want the same thing everyone else had. When I caught a glimpse of this on the Internet, it just resonated with me. I think it also reprents living life under your own terms. I really connected with the books and the heroine of the books. I like things to be original and most of all have meaning. The night before last, my husband was trying to get me to convince him why he should like it, because he thought it was lame.

He thinks it's fantastic. (I knew he would.:) Jose @ Outsiders Ink (in Tulsa, OK) did this tattoo (as well as my "Twilight" tattoo). He is an amazing artist and gives great attention to detail. I highly recommend!
  • We were at Outsiders for NINE hours! We all got a little bored after a while and I so took pictures of myself while sitting in the bathroom. Do NOT ask my why. I really have no idea.
  • Remember those New Moon candies I was telling you about? I bought some...one of each (x3). I decided to break open one of the "Bellas". I'm not sure how many WW points they are, but I ate it anyway. Pretty tasty. I bet the Edward or Jacob one would have tasted better...maybe I'll give them a try.
Aren't they cute? They say "bella" w/ a Cullen crest.
  • My good confession for the week: I was CRAVING Chili Cheese Fritos in the worst way on my way home this morning at 2:30AM. However, I did not cave. I did not go to QT and buy the "big bag". I wanted to and I wanted to chase them with a large cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper. Didn't...didn't do it.
Hope everyone is having a FABULOUS Friday! Enjoy your weekend!!

Yep, that tat looks cool! I know if you'd have told me it was a "mockingjay" I would have been like, "What is that?!" : )

I love your tattoo! The Hunger Games and Catching Fire are without a doubt two of the best books I've ever read! Did you hear they're making a movie of The Hunger Games? Supposed to be out in 2011.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Oh my.
I hate Fritos. You know how I feel about tattoos...

I do like chocolate though... no matter who or what is on the label.

Xazmin said...

Ha...I knew you would be in trouble with Vivienne!

Well, I agree with her about tattoos, but I don't hate Fritos! I like them with bean dip!
