I went for a watercolor-style four-leaf clover. While, yes, I am very Irish, I also just love the simplicity the four-leaf clover offers. Plus, it can’t hurt to have a little extra luck in my life!—chloescott32

It's a small arrow, to remind me to keep soaring forward, and one-third of the quote “i am, i am, i am.” I’ve actually wanted it for over a year, and after drawing it so many times on my arm in ballpoint pen, it’s cool to look down and see it there permanently!—brodiemears
