Occasionally, we all need a little reminder that we can do it, that everything's going to be okay, that we can overcome whatever obstacle is in our path, that we're beautiful and bright and capable and strong. A tattoo is a constant reminder, something we can see that will give us a boost when we need it most. Here are a few inspirational tattoos to give us hope, and courage, and strength, and more.
