SACRED INK

This is the time of year when most Americans can appreciate what they have, and I support any holiday which fosters that...luckily I have a permanent memo on my wrist for the same purpose...it reads...


which translates to "I will be forever grateful"from my favorite language, Italian...

Originally I was wary of tattoos, however, I found the sentiment in having some of your soul on your body, a permeant part of yourself...here are some GISELE CHIC worthy examples...

Angelina Jolie's tattoo looks stunning on her, I have quite a bit of respect for her, and this tattoo has wonderful value, seeing as her first son is from Cambodia, it means...

May your enemies run far away from you
If you acquire riches, may they remain yours always
Your beauty will be that of Apsara
Wherever you may go, many will attend, serve and protect you, surrounding you on all sides

And is a Buddhist Pali incantation in the Cambodian language, Khmer

Victoria Beckham's tattoos are a great testament to chic ink...this one down her back is written in Hebrew and translates too...

{I am my love's and my love is mine, who browses among the lilies}

She also has a wrist tattoo, quite similar to mine, with a date in roman numerals, the meaning behind the date is quite private, between her and her lovely husband...I love how mine looks with black nail polish and hers too!

I have always appreciated Nicole Richie's bohemian style, and her tattoo of a rosary on her ankle is unique and beautiful...just marvelous on her!
