"Beauty will save the world."
My newest tattoo is such a joy to me. It's wonderful to have a tattoo that I can see easily and it serves as a reminder to me as I go through my day that I am striving towards a Beauty that saves, and that this striving, the artistic vocation, is a path to holiness. It is especially helpful to have this reminder in the community that I find myself in: one that generally considers Art "stupid" and unnecessary; one that sees Beauty as little more than vanity.
Seeing my lovely tattoo throughout the day, designed by my dear husband, is an ecouragement, whether I'm gardening, throwing, baking, cleaning, or dancing, to strive toward the Supremely Beautiful, Who is Christ.
