In an unlikely corner of our solar system, scientists have discovered evidence of what they believe is a subterranean ocean. The water means a tiny moon orbiting Saturn could be one of the few places in the solar system with the right ingredients for life.
The moon Enceladus is only 300 miles wide—it would fit between New York City and Charlottesville, Va. It’s a mini-world with a bright, icy, frigid surface, and it is just one of an astounding 62 moons orbiting the ringed planet. But it is not just a static, boring ice ball. Fractures on the moon’s surface—evocatively named “tiger stripes”—emit jets of frozen water that help form one of the bands in Saturn’s rings.

Tattoo design for my mom. She’s my number one fan and my hero.
Please respect my mother and do not use this image for your own tattoo. You wouldn’t want to make her cry.

Some people have asked me for this tutorial too, I know that a few informations here are pretty obvious, but I just thought they were valid to include, and it can or cannot work for you, I just hope you find this helpful in someway :)

I’m sorry for any grammar mistake, and I don’t know how to say somethings in english, so I also hope I made myself understandable :P

Today I have tried to mend my mind with the power of soil, sound of ravens singing, the touch of moss. And I’m certain your warm spirit slumbers among the roots and leaves. When spring comes again, you will be back with it; among the first flowers.

The potatoes you see there, is the last of what my mother planted, just before she passed away.
