This is the design I am having tattooed on my shoulder.
"Vi veri veniversum vivus vici" is Latin for "By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe. I first heard this phrase from one one of my favorite graphic novels "V for Vendetta" by Alan Moore and David Lloyd.
The Celtic knot on my should is the Celtic round, which is a symbol for protection or good luck. The Trinity knot on my chest is a symbol for mind, body, and spirit or things that come in threes. The Tree of Life on my back is kind of a given. The Ivy leaves I used are a symbol of friendship and the Bay leaves are a symbol of healing.
