While shopping for some sterling silver last Thursday, my sister and I initially wanted to buy some cross pendants since mum was insisting to pay for us.
But my blonde self (who usually surfaces after school out of exhaustion from information overload) got the Ankh instead of the common crucifix since I thought it was the same thing plus it looked more "me".
After remembering that it was actually the Egyptian symbol for "eternal life," I Wikied it and after some reading found that it was also used nowadays by Hippie and Goth subcultures.
How odd, I think I've been called out as those stereotypes more than once in my life.
So far I'm likin this symbol, as it also means "Cross of Life" for Christians.
I'm thinkin it's a good design for the white tattoo I've been dying to get... Even Erykah Badu has an ankh tattoo!
