Growing up in a home with five girls was....ummm...interesting. Especially since there was only one bathroom. Now that we are all adults though (technically) I think we have what can be a rare quality. We all like each other. Ok we love each other. Now that doesn't mean we have fairy tale relationships, but I know that push come to shove any of my sisters would be there for me in a heartbeat. No questions asked.

Several years ago the idea came up that some day we should get matching sister tattoos. Awhile later my sister Britta made us each necklaces with the Pleiades constellation which is the 7 sisters. We all agreed that it would be perfect for our tattoos. The idea has been tossed around for awhile but got kind of thrown together that everyone was going to be here this last weekend.

Maiken made an appointment and we all piled into the tattoo parlor. Britta, Alex and me ended up with the same design (star bursts) and Maiken and Keeley went for circles. Different locations, different colors, but all the same constellation.

There was much hand holding and much laughing. It was a very special moment and I now smile every time I look down at my foot and see the little stars representing the support I will forever have with me. My sisters.

Ah, OK. It's the Subaru symbol. No, really, I think Subaru uses that same constellation in their cars' emblems.
Very good post. What a cool thing for you and your sisters.

Yep Subaru does use it for their symbol :)

Subaru is a good car, though, so it's all good. Ouch...Britta's loks like caked blood! But very cool.

In the group shot mine doesn't show up so well. I love love love that we did this. I love reaching back and feeling the tattoo and remembering the day.

Swede_Lady, if you zoom once, you can see yours. At least that's what I did. You girls are freaking rock stars now. Now go out to a bar or something and kick someone's ass!
Yeah, I love my Subaru, although I'm often mistaken for a lesbian while driving it.

That's really cool!

P.S. a few people have said it's the subaru symbol....the word verification for me to leave a comment is "subes". Funny.
