norah jones... slightly modified

Wake me up when it's over,Wake me up when it's done...wake me up when the skies are clearing,When the water is still,'cause I will not watch the ships sail away so,Please say you will.If it were any other day,This wouldn't get the best of me.But today I'm not so strong,So lay me down with a sad song,And when it stops then you know I've been,Gone too long.But don't shake me awake,Don't bend me or I will break,Come find me somewhere between my dreams,With the sun on my face.I will still feel it later on,But for now I'd rather be asleep.

soooo... I'm thinking about a tattoo

I have long thought I would someday get a tattoo and that tattoo would have a decidedly scottish theme to it. I also always assumed I would get it on my foot... the more I thought about it tho... I didn't like it there. As I consider possible locations, I thought the inside of my wrist... can easily be hidden with a watch or bracelet... my foot--harder to hide in sandles. So I was thinking a simple scottish flag. It's 'plain' enough, that it can be done very small... and still look good.

Then a friend found this on line... I REALLY LOVE IT... but it is bigger and therefore... would have to go back to the foot... what to do what to do!?!?!? If I go with the heart and thistle... I think I would likely have it done with less detail... more clean lines... I'd like to hear your thoughts?!

Loyalty Thistle--Modeled after a very old kilt pin, the thistle of Scotland is enclosed within the arms of a heart, a symbol of love for country and kin.
