Tattoo Number 2

I totally forgot to mention my new tattoo. I tend to forget about my tattoos haha..when somebodies like "heh whats that on ur wrists" it ALWAYS takes me longer than 10 seconds to realize I've got one. I got it just thursday, it's still in the oh-so-painful healing process. Here's a picture:

I just wanted to get an Ankh but it turned out to have a triple meaning.
1. The Ankh itself -> egyptian sign for joy / appreciation of life.
2. Crucified Jesus. I deny every religion. There is a HUGE border between RELIGION and BELIEVE in my opinion. God doesnt live in Churches...
3. A sword as sign of strength. It doesnt need a close look to see the sword in it ;-)
It turned out that everyone see's something different in it, some see the sword, some jesus, others the ankh... The process of getting it was not painful, more like a massage at times haha seriously.. the healing tho is very painful. Let's hope it'll still look great in the end.

Erfurt, year 1510

Spend the weekend in medieval Erfurt. Every year in June, theres a huge medieval festival in my lovely city Erfurt, called "Krämerbrückenfest" (mr.google knows better folks). Started out on Friday when my dear friend Anna invited me to join her watching her friends, the English band "Bleeding Hearts" @a gig in the Irish pub of Erfurt. Whilst I discovered the beautiness of a reflex camera , my friend Eric found his soulmate in singer Steven.

Saturday i was off to meet some LARP-friends -> live role players. Knights and elves fighting with sword and axe. I did always make fun of them but in the end it turned out to be a great way to just forget all your problems and dive into a new (old :P) world - the world of the medieval ages. Great people i tell ya.. I now bought my outfit for the next medieval festival to come in August. Salve!
