Atargatis

 

Let me introduce you to a woman who creates some visuals with me: Atargatis.

This isn’t her Fetlife name, nor her real name. I choose it because she reminds me of the sea, not just for her tattoos but also because she swims regularly with a mermaid tail and has a deep love for the water and inhabitants within.Oriental Mermaid Goddess

The earliest known mermaid legends come from Syria around 1000 B.C. where the Syrian goddess Atargatis dove into a lake to take the form of a fish, but the powers there would not allow her give up her great beauty, so only her bottom half became a fish and she kept her top half in human form.Gods and Monsters 

She has bright, light eyes and colorful hair. She often dresses like a pin up in cowboy boots or in tutus with heels. Former military, adventurous, bubbly, outgoing, a writer, spunky, and short like me, she packs a powerful punch in a fun package.

I knew we would be fast friends when she was the only one willing to mud wrestle my ex-husband naked at a kinky camping-themed social. She held her own pretty well, and he ended up scarred.

She is very creative, loves to take photography and paint. Visions come to life with her. She can be impulsive, which works well with my own spontaneous nature of “hey, let’s do….”. We’ve been friends for years now.
