    I have always been a huge fan of the poem Invictus, I was thinking about taking the poem into my artist and having him draw it up "symbolically" essentially something that can be tattooed on me not using words(I may put the title at the top because Invictus in Latin means unconquered). I wanted to see if you guys thought this was a good idea or could even be done. Here is a copy of the poem to see what you guys think:

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of Circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeoning of Chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    honestly I think most people would have different interpretations from each other. I'd tell ur artist what it means to u then have an open discussion about turning it into visual art.

    Every artist I've met has their own style and would interpret the poem to meet their style.

    I'm getting the last stanza done on my right ribs later on this summer :h5:, been in the works for a while. Going to have it lettered custom/gothic with sort of an ivy/interconnected background, hard to explain. Basically a full rib mural.
