New Tat

Standard

Got inked tonight.  This tattoo represents the gift running provided for me.
It’s a runner girl with a halo (me) being chased by the devil holding a pitchfork and a lemon.
Lots of layers to this one.
In the beginning the devil is actually the devil trying to seduce me in to giving in to the doubts I had about christianity.  Basically devil (bad conscience) vs angel (good conscience).
Now the devil signifies the religion that I left and how I feel more “angelic” being outside of religion.
There is a footprint for each marathon I’ve run and the lemon is representative of the mount lemmon half marathon I ran last year because it was one hell of an uphill!
My running partner also pointed out that the devil can often represent that nagging negative self talk that often told me I was too fat, too old, too slow, too busy to run a marathon but ultimately I win in the end.
Love It! Love It!  Love It!
