A more recent picture of me. Taken at work so I'm in my trusty lab coat.
And since I talk about my kids a lot, here are my 3 boys <3
The dark haired one is Xander, he's 5 and just started kindergarten. The light haired one is Owen and he's going to be 4 this month. The baby is Liam (6-7 weeks old in this picture), who is sadly no longer with us. He grew his angel wings and went to heaven at the end of January of this year.
Ok, so... this is the tat I got for my Daughter. Ellison Lyra Bakken. It is the constellation Lyra. Why?? The night my wife and I found out we were having a baby I saw a shooting star. Lyra is a constellation of music (the Lyre) and both my wife and I are musical people. Vega, the brightest star in Lyra, sits directly overhead during July nights, the month Ellison was born.
The top most star in constellation is a 5 sun system which represents the star that fell that night. The next star down is Vega which will one day thousands of years from now be the new north star. The 'O' with the 'x' is the Kabbalistic sign for Vega and it represents all that is brilliant, amazing, wonderful, and beautiful in our daughter. The next star down isn't quite finished. It's a two sun system of stars about the same size and age. I'm going to add another circle there so that they cress, which would represent her mothers maiden name 'Cressman'. The next star down is a red giant and smaller blue star; which as drawn looks like an eye. I like to think of it as my wife and I always watching over her. The infinity sign basically is there to represent just how long we will love her. The two suns in this system went through a process where they exchanged energies in a way that looks similar to the infinity sign. The 'M57' ring is the ring nebula and when I add another ring will represent my wife and I's wedding rings, and the love we have for one another. Eventually I hope to get more of the star map tattooed on me, but this is of course the most meaningful piece.
Not sure about scared... but.... This thread has been going on for almost 6 years. I mean, I could flood this topic with pictures of my baby girl, but thats not really an IRL pic of ME. Plus I still look about the same. I did get a new tat though... hm... maybe I should dig that pic out.
