To Janer, here’s something I found interesting…

“Your necklace may break, the fau tree may burst, but my tattooing is indestructible.  It is an everlasting gem that you will take into your grave.”

~Verse from a traditional tattoo artist’s song, as quoted on pbs.org, “Skin Stories: The Art and Culture of Polynesian Tattoo,” 2003
