In The Depths Of Winter by petebritney In The Depths Of Winter by petebritney
" in the depths of winter i learned that there was in me an invincible summer " - albert camus .

second tattoo ! definitely alot more painful than the first haha but once again im in LOVE with the outcome :D the writing is actually straight across when im standing with my arm relaxed down as is with my other tattoo . the meaning is all about finding your inner strength in the hard times , your invincible summer inside yourself .

I really really like the meaning of the text. I'm curious why you did not get the whole phrase tattood. Must say that it is a nice placement too :)
Reply
:iconpetebritney:
petebritney Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2011
there are a few reasons why i dint get the whole quote : partially because im not a fan of large bulk texts on the body , i like the more delicate pieces that portray beauty and dont scream a message . to save room for other pieces i want - there are sooo many quotes and words of wisdom that inspire me i would hate to not have placement for one because of a large quote i liked which kindof links to the last reason - i know the message in its entirity i dont feel i need the whole thing ? it makes the tattoo more personal to me because a stranger would not know what these words for example mean so they cannot assume they know me before they KNOW me . i have other messages that i want to put on my body and right now they will ALL be for me , so therefore i want them all to be understood by me at a glance ;) lastly - makes a nice conversation topic explaining them haha .
im so glad you " really really " like the meaning and i hope you can find inspiration in it .

yeah i have a tattoo myself and i'm in this hunting inspirational moment that i think everybody with tattoos has :)
I like what you said on having a personal quote and that it does not need to screem the message, it's indeed always better to not have somthing that states the obvious. That's why i always find it very nice to put tattoos on places people don't instantly see or to rephrase them so that people don't get them, because i believe a tattoo is personal and not made for attention whoring :D
and have fun with filling up your body with words of wisdom ;) i'll be doing the same lol

Great placement and I love the meaning! I'm getting my next tattoo at some point soon so I know it can be kind of addicting (despite the pain). :heart:

Exactly! I'm broke now, so I think that hurts a little more than getting the tattoo.
