My New Tattoo !

I was going to wait until it was was completely healed but that is going to be another week or so. So i thought i would just post about it now :) The tattoo i got was a collar bone tattoo and the quote i got was " It's better to burn out than to fade away " I seen it a while ago and had no idea what it was from but it turns out its from quite a few things .. a song by Neil Young, the last line of Kurt Cobain's suicide letter ( hence the Nirvana reference in my last post ) and also from the film Highlander. I know that quote's can be taken different ways by different people but to me this tattoo means that i would rather burn out and fail trying to achieve all my dreams than to not even try and to just let my life fade away ! I really love it and it's my favourite tattoo so far :) So without further ado here are the pics !
