Strength, Wisdom and Warfare

Remember me talking about a new tattoo in the planning stages that I was very excited about? Well, Its here and ready to be shared!

I found this Amanda Mocci piece on her website and immediately fell in love with it. The artwork depicts Athena; the goddess of strength, wisdom and warfare. Strength and Wisdom are two distinct attributes that I feel I have gained over the past two years. Through turbulent times of single parenting and separation along with filtering friendships and forming relationships. The beautiful picture represents perfectly to me, who I strive to be.

After two and half hours of magnificent work by a local tattoo artist, I now have this. And I couldn't be happier with it! I am hoping to return shortly for a colour session and a further touch up and fine-tune. I have chosen natural and earthy colours to shade through the wings of the owl and the windblown hair of the girl. I cant wait to share the final finished product with you!


  1. Hi Natalie! Wow, I am truly flattered that you decided to get Athena as a tattoo. It looks great! I can't wait to see it once it's colored :)


  2. Its great! but where is it on you?? couldnt quite figure that one out!

  3. Thanks Amanda! I loved it ever since I stumbled upon it online.

    @Recycled Relix, its on my upper thigh. Hidden most of the time, unless I want it out in summer (which doesnt happen all that often!)
