The Deathly Hallows - A Stuck?! sketch

Hey Everybody!

Today I'm bringing you a new page, and I have to admit, it is one of the favorites I have made in a while!

I used a wonderful sketch from the awesome Stuck?! sketches blog. I documented my first tattoo & a quote that sheds a little light into what it means (I journaled the entire story of the meaning behind my tattoo in my TN for future reference...).

Here is the original sketch:

I was definitely inspired by the diagonal, and LOOOOONG title for sure! Haha!

I got my tattoo shortly after my Grandmother passed, during which I was re-reading the Harry Potter books. I love the idea of allowing one to greet death as an old friend, rather than have it unceremoniously take you miserably from this world.

It's more than just a book or a story when it relates to your own life & makes you see things in new ways.
