Red String Of Fate Tattoo – (it Should Be Her Pinky And His Thumb) “according To Chinese Legend, Two People Who Are Destined To Be Together Are Attached By An Invisible Red String Bound From A Male’s Thumb To A Female’s Pinky Finger. An Invisible Red Thread Connects Those Who Are Destined To Meet, Regardless Of Time, Place, Or Circumstances. The Thread May Stretch Or Tangle But Will Never Break.”
String of fate is an Asian belief that two people are connected by a string that was tied together by the gods. People are destined to develop a great friendship, fall in love, or help each other in some way. I want it as a reminder that my relation with my students and the people around me are going to continuously change, fall apart, evolve, and improve, but will always be connected. And I want mine in blue.
The red string of fate, a fairly popular concept, originates from Chinese folklore, as told by Anita's Notebook. The story speaks of a real, physical but invisible red string that connects every person to one other being somewhere in the world, who they are meant to be with forever regardless of circumstances. Though the string may tangle, knot and stretch, it is unbreakable and can never be untied.
