4. A subtle name in Ogham

Yesterday I graced my body with something that may appear to be so simple and so meaningless but to me it's the greatest honor. This simple bunch of lines stands for the maiden name of the most influential woman in my life today. Hickey it means in the first script of Ireland which derives from Kilmihil County Clare Ireland where the greatest woman to ever be was born. I know when people say they love their grandmother they mean it just as much as I do but my grandmother has taught me more lessons in life without her even knowing. I'm so thankful every day for her presence. This tattoo will be on me forever just as she will be with me forever.
