Upon arriving in Santiago I mentioned that I'd post about our souvenirs later, the criteria being an item light in weight and unbreakable. I gave another hint in this post where the photo of the Camino symbol of the city of Navarette appeared, our favourite symbol on the Way.
So, we took the big step to commemorate our experience together and after an acceptable amount of consideration and research, we visited Dr. Mortiis in Santiago for our Camino tattoos. The pictures make them look larger than their size of 3cms, about 1.25". It was something we never thought we'd do, but agreed it was an appropriate gesture of solidarity. If you know us, I should probably have told you to sit down first, this being so out of character.
Coincidentally Chuck is now reading a book which refers to "those turning points in people's lives that inspire a tattoo - almost any pilgrim experience will do." (J. Irving)
It was something very different for us, but I can confidently say we've had not a smidge of regret.
