Daruma doll heads have blank eyes. When you receive one, you fill in one eye and make a wish or set a goal. When you get your wish or achieve your goal, you fill in the other eye. It's a little reminder to keep your eyes on the prize. I happened to put it on the top of my thigh because it's one of the easiest places to tattoo yourself. It also happens to be a great spot for a reminder tattoo because I see it every day when I have alone time to do some thinking... on the $#!++er.
A moth flying towards the Daruma is perfect, as the moth is seeker of light. I've also been thinking of what I could put around the Daruma for a while, so it worked out sweet. I decided to freehand a little candle on the Daruma head also, as a further representation of the light. It's cool to see my progression over the last three years on my journey to filling in that other eye. Anyways... enough jaw flappin' (or finger typin')... here's the pics:
