Part of my in-progress Bukowski half sleeve. This image comes from the poem “Let it Enfold You.” The poem is about a man who is full of hatred but who eventually learns to let life, and the beautiful things life has to offer, enfold him:
<i>I began to see things:coffee cups lined upbehind a counter in a cafe.or a dog walking alonga sidewalk.or the way the mouseon my dresser topstopped therewith its body,its ears,its nose,it was fixed,a bit of lifecaught within itselfand its eyes looked at meand they werebeautiful.then- it wasgone.</i>

<i>I began to see things:
coffee cups lined up
behind a counter in a
cafe.
or a dog walking along
a sidewalk.
or the way the mouse
on my dresser top
stopped there
with its body,
its ears,
its nose,
it was fixed,
a bit of life
caught within itself
and its eyes looked
at me
and they were
beautiful.
then- it was
gone.</i>

I had this tattoo August 2009. It was the summer i&#8217;d turned 18 and had realised &#8220;loose lips (really do) sink ships&#8221; Its definatly a life lesson and a saying i will take with me for the rest of my life. The Vivienne Westwood orb symbolized my love for not only Vivienne but for the inspiration that she and fashion had on my life and still does.
The anchor symbolized the idea i was happy and stable. I had it done just before i moved out for university to study fashion promotion so the tattoo as a whole has a really strong sentimental meaning to me.
