My fascination with the number five began on my birthday, November 5th, in 1993. I remember, at the age of four, being excited that I was about to turn five, my favorite number.
As I got older, I realized that my mother was also born on the 5th, only in March. She, too, favors the number five.
Now, at the age of 19, I learn that my deceased grandfather’s favorite number was five.
This was all the inspiration for my latest tattoo: a simple Roman Numeral five.
