Origin

Perusing the pop section at the library, I saw it. The book. The origin of my tattoo. Trademarks of the '60s & '70s. Page 87.

1967
Daiwa Corportation
Gardena, California
Fishing reels and fishing rods

I had completely forgotten it was in reverse. The negative of what is now on my skin. The book says, "[The sunburst's...] many symbolic abstractions reference the center of the universe or the soul...,and the circular shape suggests permanence, warmth, and comfort."

I love this tattoo.

Permanence. Warmth. Comfort.

That is indeed a lovely symbol. Whenever I see sunbursts I think of my mom. She was a sun worshipper her whole life. :)

I believe that is the bravest thing I have ever heard. Cowards like me would have looked up the meaning before we got the tattoo!
