In my visit in Japan I felt in love with Daruma dolls, created after the founder of Buddhism. There were millions of them everywhere, specially at the temples, and didn’t feel fine until I bought one for myself.
To tell the truth I found out their meaning and their “mission” once I got back home, and thought they were even cooler.
When you buy one of these, you paint one of the eyes, wishing your aim, your target, will be accomplished, mostly due to your hard work, but also dealing with good wishes and hope. When, IF, your targets and wishes come true, you gotta paint the other eye.
Why am I telling this? Because I decided I’m getting inked two of them, one with the two eyes, and one with a single one in my forearm. You might find it stupid, I think it can be a nice lucky charm.
I’ll tell you how it goes, I’m starting getting nervous. 😀
