I spend a lot of my life sweating the small stuff. The meaning here is to remind myself about the more important things in life (peace, harmony, love, friendship, etc). It forces me to see things in perspective, and remember that there are much bigger things than me in the world.

Fountains of Wayne says it pretty well (no, the tat is not inspired by this song):
Lying on the floor just playing my guitar
Trying to find the chords for "Just The Way You Are"
Plane crash flashing on my TV
Well it could have been you, baby
It could have been me

We'll never live forever
But baby things could be worse
Cause when we get together we are one with the Universe

Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby
Peace and love

I was actually thinking of something like this.
Peace, Love, and happiness tattoos.
A peace sign, a heart, and a smiley face.
They'd be on the wrist, But I'm not sure if they would be on three different people,
Or on the same person.
I just thought I'd share this with youu. :lol:

Great concept! I love the line weight of these - just perfect. Did the artist use a standard template or draw them up himself?

These signs are rather 'reminding others', than 'reminding yourself', because when you look at them, they are upside down.
peace and love :peace:

Point well taken. The direction of the symbols was definitely considered before that decision was made. But the aesthetic of having them oriented with the natural arrangement or my body appealed to me. The meaning still holds, and maybe some people need reminding once in a while. :nod:
