I recently heard a dream report of having leopard print tattoos on the forearms. The dreamer at first thought they were really cool, but later had the reaction of “What have I done?”
In my imagined version of this dream, the forearms are the area of the body that supports and facilitates my use of my hands, and hands are how I do my work in the world and manipulate my environment. So this dream, for me, is a celebration of how I’ve been able to channel the wild energies of the leopard to help me manifest the world I live in. From my own marking dreams, I’ve come to see that when I really see a truth about myself (leopard tattoos), there’s no going back. My tattoos are permanent, and I don’t always want the world to see them, even if I really enjoyed them at first.
