The Kodama Tattoo.


I got very excited this morning when we received this lovely agony from a contributor with a beautiful kodama tattoo on her left shoulder. A “kodama” is a spirit from Japanese folklore that got popularized from one of my favorite Hayao Miyazaki films, “Princess Mononoke”. They kinda run around forests and bob their heads left and right while making strange rattling sounds… and are amazingly cute. However, they do bring misfortune onto those that cut down trees because that’s where they live, so don’t do that! It’s bad for the environment! Here’s a video about Kodamas which I found on youtube.
