DryadA dryad (Δρυάδες, sing.: Δρυάς) is a tree nymph, that is a female spirit of a tree, in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies "oak". Thus dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general. They were normally considered to be very shy creatures, except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs. by gypsykane

Fairy Hill, Skye. There are fairy hills, or knolls, across Scotland, but some of the most famous are in Skye. It was on one particular hill way back in the midst of time that Iain Òg MacCrimmon was said to have been practising for a piping competition. A fairy woman heard him and approached him saying: Your handsome looks and sweet music/Have brought you a fairy sweetheart/I bequeath you this silver chanter/At the touch of your fingers/It will always bring forth the sweetest music. by Robyn36

This was my second of three tattoos. It’s the word “Yahweh” written in the original Hebrew. Yahweh was considered the most sacred name of God in the Old Testament, only the high priests knew how to even pronounce the word. It was so sacred because it’s not a word to describe God, it’s His actual name. And now the name of my Creator is written on His creation, like a signature. by henrietta
