In our dreams we are able to fly … and that is a remembering of how we were meant to be

@KateByDesign:  How about “Alis volat propriis?” It means “she flies with her own wings” in Latin.

Also, this butterfly tattoo doesn’t look so bad. It looks so realistic, like the butterfly is just resting on her chest/shoulder:

@KateByDesign:  I confirmed with her that she was indeed referring to the theme song to Space Jam.  She said yes.


I laughed for like a good thirty seconds here. I’m sorry, but that is really funny!

I’m completely unhelpful and have no advice, but I’ll think about it. I just had to comment because I was so amused by your OP, lol.

@somethingaquamarine:  Wow…that is creepy it is so realistic. I was seriously like, “Why is someone posting a pic of a butterfly on someone?”, and then I realized. If I didn’t despise butterflies so much I would probably think it was cool, haha.

@Wonderstruck:  Butterflies make me think of the late 90s. All of those butterfly tramp stamps kind of killed it for me too.

@littlepossum:  Thanks! Although admittedly, the bar is set really low. Almost anything can beat out R. Kelly lyrics and butterfly/angel wings.

“I confirmed with her that she was indeed referring to the theme song to Space Jam.”

omg lolol YESSSSS this is how I still think of that song too.

“But i did have the heart to tell her that R. Kelly likes to sing about peeing on underage girls…”

Yeah, that can be awkward. But I’m still playing Michael Jackson songs at my wedding and we all know about him. So I really think you can let the art stand apart from the artist or even from other pieces of the artist’s art.

“she flies with her own wings”

That’s pretty even in English. It isn’t SHORTER, but I like the sentiment even more!

I just googled “Fly quotes” to get these links…

“eyes turned skyward” is one I like – Da Vinci, evidently.

She could get the wings on the backs of her arms, if she wants something big. It’s a little more unique that way, I personally like the look. If she’s thinking really small, she could get them on an ankle, like Hermes!

(Not the best example but the others disallowed hotlinking.)
