Is it weird to like the honeycomb pattern but hate bees and honey? (as in, liking it so much you'd want a tattoo of it)

What you're explaining sounds beautiful and unique, I'd love to hear more about it!

I first had this idea of like having pawprints and just adding one whenever someone close to me died but I figured they'd look really cluttered afterwards if I have like a lot of them

so when the honeycomb pattern came it was the solution for everything :heart: 
I semi-believe in reincarnation (actually, I believe in the 07 Ghost version of reincarnation lmfao, where a soul gets to make three wishes and once they've fulfilled them in the living world they die and lose their memories and get new wishes for a new life, or at least that's how it went I think lmfao uvu)

So for every person I'd lose, one of the patterns will be filled in (I'm thinking of just doing random colours, maybe watercolour fades from blue to pink or w/e for example instead of just black since black fades over time and I'd have to have the lines redone anyway so it should save me a bit of money on retouching anyway) and I'd gain a honeycomb for their reincarnation and for someone new to fill their place or something like that uvu

Right now, if I did it like this week or w/e, I'd have to have 9 honeycombs and three of them filled in

That sounds beautiful, especially the watercolor fade, maybe maintain your hexagonal shapes but have the watercolor paint texture drip in some places? Unsure, just spewing out thoughts! It sounds like such a wonderful project, taking the things that hurt the most and making them into something beautiful. 

I absolutely love it. 

I always wanted to get a tattoo in remembrance of my grandmother, but she hated tattoos so it'd be a slap in the face? Pshhhhhhhh lol.

yeye exactly haha


and yea I think my grandmother didn't like it that much either but im pretty much stumped on what else to do in remembrance
my brother named his kid after her and my sister is going to marry on her birthday so
she died like two days after my birthday so I can't do anything on that date either

You can do whatever you want in remembrance for her. Something that may seem insignificant to some people could mean the world to someone else. 

I almost named my cat after my grandmother, my mother thought it was silly but my cats are my children. I decided against it because of other family bs but hey maybe next time.

I would definetly  say it is not even a little unusual to like the patterns of a honeycomb, and disliking bees. I personally hate bees and wasps, but I like the patterns. C:

So like lmfao
the fascination started with like seeing a drawing of BBC Sherlock Holmes as a punk sorta with a honeycomb + bee tattoo
and I was like hot damn thats actually pretty cool

So I became fascinated with them and remembered something that my economics teacher said that the honeycomb shape is like the perfect shape of society/economics because it fits in all or something like that ????? like it can just be repeated over and over again and that's why they use that shape to show like city structures (as in economy wise??) in the textbooks or something
and im like hot damn thats actually pretty cool 

and then I'm like
what if like
I get a tattoo of like a dozen honeycomb shapes on my shoulderblade and then fill in the blanks for every dear person or animal that ive lost
and then add 2 more for every one of those coloured ones
so my back would be a tally of the struggles that I faced but reminding me that for every person that I lose I can gain the same person through reincarnation and another new person

something like that ???????
