Jaimie's Emersonian Ink

 "Nothing can bring you peace but yourself" are the words inked across Jaimie's back. I spotted her down the street from my home in Bay Ridge.

I asked Jaimie to explain why she got these words from poet Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay "Self-Reliance" on her back:
"This has been my favorite quote for years," she told me. "I studied American literature in college, so I studied a lot of Emerson." She also noted that the quote is "very true".

She had this tattooed in Manhattan on St. Mark's.

Thanks to Jaimie for sharing this great tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
