Day of BirtH, "Birth Mark"

I recognize this might seem a frivolous and selfish thing to ask for. That being said, I'm asking for contributions anyhow.  For my 39th birthday, I would like a tattoo. For me, tattoos represent both the completion of a cycle and the start of a new one. I place the value of a tattoo HIGH in my mind. They are permanent reminders of my evolution as a human being. They mark the changes I've endured and the hopes I have for the future. They are like birthmarks to me, appearing on my skin at turning points in my life. 

I am at another turning point in my life. Things are changing and I am adapting as best I can. If you would like donate to the inking of these changes, it would mean the world to me!

As for WHAT tattoo I'd like to get, that has yet to be decided. I have multiple ideas. One of which is an Angler Fish. Another is a Mastodon skull with Octopus tentacles for tusks. The sea seems to be a theme this time. Appropriately so, since I feel I've been in the "depths" for quite some time.

I'm asking for $389 because: 3=30's. 8=38 years old, turning 9-39. I would be sincerely grateful for even $1 toward my "cause." Thank you in advance to anyone willing and able to donate!!
