Autumn-Themed Tatts

my one and only symbol 

My tattoo has personal meaning to me. I wish I lived in autumn 24/7, 365 days a year. The season is the most magical, beautiful, colorful, comfortable, cozy, and sentimental.

I spirited myself from that steady base to have a journey. It also became my online name, Autumnforest.
