Missy Needs a Miracle

I met Missy last month in Penn Station and she shared this, her first tattoo:

This is also the first Icelandic tattoo on Tattoosday!

The phrase in Icelandic, "Mér vartar kraftaverk" , Missy loosely translated as "I need a miracle". It is a memorial tattoo for a friend of hers who was killed after being hit by a car.

This tattoo not only serves as a memorial (she needs a miracle to bring her friend back), but also provides strength and prayers for any future challenges she may face in life.

The phrase was inked by Chi Chi Gunz at Silk City Tattoo in Hawthorne, New Jersey. Work from Silk City has appeared previously on our site here.

Thanks to Missy for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Funny thing that this phrase is completely wrong. This is something a 3 year old would say. The correct phrase is "Ég þarf kraftaverk". But even then this phrase does not have any special meaning. Only what it says.
