I've wanted a tattoo for a long time, but I didn't know what to get.  I knew I would be unhappy if I got a design that lost its appeal or became something that was no longer relevant to my life.  So, it took me a while to figure out what would be important to me years down the road.

It's safe to say that after all the blood, sweat, and tears (mostly figurative) of med school that I'm in this for the long haul.  As a reward for Step 1 and as an affirmation of my future, I picked a Staff of Aesclepius for my tattoo.

I drew these (copied from the Internet, though).

Outline first!

Filling it in...

Finished tattoo!

I love it.  I couldn't stop grinning for the rest of the evening.  If you want a tattoo, I highly recommend Custom Tattoo on the East Side.  Greg did an awesome job!
