So, I was thinking of several, translated into other languages or alphabets. These are the text ones:

"Storyteller" (an appropriate label)
"Tell them stories" (my favorite line from the His Dark Materials trilogy)
"There is a word for each leaf, and each wall, and there is a word for nothing."

I was thinking Sanskrit, because these all have to do with me being a writer, and Sarasvati is one of my favorite deities (the Hindu Goddess of writing). I entertained the thought of just translating it into Cuneiform since that's the earliest known form of writing, but Cuneiform is kind of ugly.

Also, I thought about Ogham script because it can be written vertically and I like the idea of a text tattoo going down my spine from my neck, but Ogham, too, is kind of ugly. If I had any connection to Japanese or Chinese I might do that, but I don't.

It's a process. And a fun one! :D
