Isildilmë you are wonderful! I love your tattoo too, and the story behind it!
The new transcription you just did for me looks amazing, so now I'm all inspired and am going to go work on it, along with our sons name, to design my tattoo! woot!
The story behind the "love, laughter and loud noises" is that when we were preparing for our wedding, we found a local place that makes custom titanium wedding rings. Part of the price of them included engraving the inside of it with a word/phrase. We thought about it for a long time, and "love and laughter" kept coming up, but it needed to be a third "L". We were being idiots one day, wrestling and just yelling and having fun when I did the classic scene from the movie "anchorman" and I yelled "LOUD NOISES", to which we both immediately
decided needed to be the third "L" word in our rings (cos we're idiots, and tend to make loud noises for the fun of it) and so we have "Love, laughter and loud noises"! haha. I love the phrase, it's become very much "us", and now I have it transcribed, it is a way to honour our marriage without making the potential mistake of actually tattooing his name on me!
Thank you, you really are amazing doing these! And so many others!!! And for no better reason than you're awesome. hehe.
Now, a huge big merry christmas to you! I WILL come back with my design and with my final tattoo; I promise!
