Out for Blood (House of Comarré) by Kristen PainterWhat Lies Beneath

I love talking about the tattoos that my hero and heroine both wear in my gothic urban fantasy series, the House of Comarré. Blood Rights begins the House of Comarré series and the fourth book, Out for Blood, releases today. The same hero and heroine star in every book so readers really get to know them and their tattoos. Here’s a little more about those!

In the case of my heroine, Chrysabelle, her tattoos aren’t actual ink, but sacred gold that’s been melted down and stitched into her skin. These marks are called signum and it’s a very painful process, as you might imagine, but every one of her kind (the comarré) undergoes the procedure to help purify their blood. See, the comarré are blood slaves whose job it is to feed the noble class of vampires so they don’t ravage the human race. Chrysabelle bears a large number of signum, more than many of her comarré siblings, making her one of the most highly prized of her kind.

The comarré are already a status symbol among the vampire nobility, who buy the comarré the way human millionaires buy Bentleys and beach houses. Unlike other material goods, the blood of the comarré actually increases their patron’s power. So the more gold in their skin, the more power they can provide.

My outcast vampire hero, Mal, has ink for an entirely different reason. His came to him by way of a curse and they mark him as an anathema to the rest of the nobility. His ink is actually a body suit of names. Each name belongs to a victim. Someone he drank to death. And because of another curse he’s under which makes it impossible to sink his fangs into someone and let them live, those names number in the thousands. Unlike Chrysabelle’s gilding, Mal’s names aren’t always stationary. Sometimes they merge and flow over him, covering him until he turns into the manifestation of the beast that lives within him. Sometimes, when Chrysabelle touches him, she can feel them moving.

In these ways, the marks of my two characters give the casual observer an idea of who they are. Chrysabelle looks like a sparkling prize, Mal a dark, tortured monster. And while these initial impressions aren’t wrong, they don’t begin to scratch the surface of what lies beneath Chrysabelle and Mal’s expansively distinctly decorated skin.

Books in the House of Comarré series in the order they should be read:
Blood Rights
Flesh and Blood
Bad Blood
Out for Blood

Author Bio:

A little about me: I’m a former college English teacher, but I’ve held a crazy mix of other jobs including maitre’d for Wolfgang Puck, personal trainer, and sales for Christian Dior Bijoux. On the writing side of things, I’m a two-time Golden Heart finalist and have been on the board of three different RWA chapters. What can I say? I like getting involved. I’m not adverse to bossing people around either.

My forays into writing have been as varied as the jobs I’ve held. I’ve written poetry, articles for magazines, short stories, paranormal romances (that include fantasy, contemporary and steampunk genres) and now I’ve found a home with urban fantasy. I love worldbuilding and few genres give you the kind of license urban fantasy does.

I’m also the co-founder of the award-winning writer’s site Romancedivas.com. I blog occasionally at www.fictionistas.blogspot.com and tweet at twitter.com/Kristen_Painter more often than I should. You can also find me on my Facebook author page here: www.facebook.com/KristenPainterAuthor

I live in FL with my retired Air Force husband and a horde of feline dependents. I’m represented by The Knight Agency.

  1. hi Kristen, thanks for coming today, loved your post :)

  2. yes I have a rose tattoo that I got with my daughter, it means alot to me

  3. When you are writing and you experience a writer’s block or the words just aren’t coming to you what do you do? What are some of your personal tips to make the muse sing?

    • I don’t really believe in writer’s block. You can always write something. When I’m not feeling it, I just push through knowing something will eventually click and then I’ll come back and fix whatever mess I’ve made.

  4. Andrew Grigaliunas

    Hello! My name is Andrew and I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.

  5. I have two tattoos. I have a Celtic love knot and a fleur de lis. I got the first as a personal 21st birthday gift to myself. Other than the idea that love is never ending it does not have significant purpose. I got the second bc my parents left me during labor day weekend a few years ago and I wanted to do something naughty and since they don’t approve of tattoos it was perfect. I chose the fleur because I am an art history major and the symbol has many many different meanings. But the biggest thing the fluer represents is nobility. Plenty of nobles placed the symbol on their shields and crests.

  6. Andrew Grigaliunas

    Hello Kristen! My question for you is:

    When you start writing your novels, do you write in order: beginning, middle, then end or do you freewrite first then organize later? Do you know all of your characters before you write or do you change them a lot throughout the writing?

    –DREW
    agrigaliunas@yahoo.com

  7. I love tattoos, though I don’t have any myself. Chrysabelle and Mal sound like interesting characters; I can’t wait to read more about them!

  8. Oh and Kristen, I have to say that, as a shoes lover myself, I love it when you post pics of your amazing shoes.

  9. If I was a tattoo, where would you put me?

  10. Do you have a grand plan for your series? An end goal you wish them to achieve? Or do you write the story as it comes to you?

    • Colleen, I wouldn’t say I had a “grand plan” as I usually know only a few things – where the book starts, a few things that happen along the way and where it ends. Everything else comes to me as I write.

  11. Kristen, I’m so excited for you. I love the characters and the world you built for this series. It was fun learning about all your past jobs… Wishing you continued success with this and all your books!!

  12. Thank you for doing this. It helped me discover your series and I purchased book 1.

  13. Being a maitre d’ must have given you a lot of fodder for writing! What do you think of the current “chef as rock star” trend, and all the competition-based cooking shows?

  14. I recently picked up Blood Rights and can’t wait to dig into this series. Now that I know the hero is a tortured & tattooed (two of my favorite things) I’m chomping at the bit.

    One question, how do you pronounce Comarr

  15. I don’t have any tattoos–I’m an anomaly in my city as one of the very few who don’t! So, I guess my fear of needles is what defines me. :-)

    • I don’t have any tattoos either as I’m also afraid of needles, although having a diabetic cat who requires a twice daily insulin shot has really helped me in that area. Now I’m thinking about getting my first little tattoo!

  16. What do you have planned next after this series?

  17. Nope, no ink for me. I hate needles soo very badly. Don’t even have pierced ears!!

  18. How did you get the idea for this series? It’s incredible!

    • I actually had the idea for the character of Chrysabelle when I was in college, but I didn’t know what her story was until a few years ago. I was in a bad mood and that’s when Mal came to me. LOL

  19. Are you a full time or part time writer? What would you say are the benefits of your way?

  20. No ink for me.

  21. Hi Kristen! Very interesting post. I love what you’ve done with your mythology and how it ties to both the hero and heroine in different ways. Congrats on the release!!

  22. I love the idea of the heroine’s tattoos increasing her value. Mal’s tattoos being alive is also intriguing. I have loved the covers since the first one you shared. I have got to 1-click this series!

  23. Question – When you started this series did you have designs in mind for their tattoos/marks? Just curious? Or did you have the artdepartment have free reign on the books?

    • Raonaid, I had some vague ideas for Chrysabelle, but I trusted the art department. Clearly, they did a great job! For Mal, I just knew they’d be names, although he’s never been rendered by an artist yet.

  24. What a great idea with the gold tattoo vs. ink. Looking forward to reading your series, Kristen. How many will be in the series?

    p.s. It was great meeting you and your agent in New Orleans…

    Dawn

  25. What about you? Do you have any ink? Does it define you? Or is it just a peek into who you are?

    Sadly I do not have any ink. Though I would love to have one. I’ve always been told/taught to choose an image that reflects you. So I would love to have a red dragon holding a stylized double bow. The bow wrapped in vines. I was born in year of the red dragon and celtic zodiac is vine and the bow sort of reflects on my love of elvish!

  26. Happy Release Day, Kristen! :)

    Your covers for this series are so beautiful!

  27. I only like tattoos on others ;). I actually put up a fuss when I had to have three little marks inked on my for radiation :).

    How cool was it working for Puck? Is he as nice as he looks?

    Thank you.

  28. I love the meaning and backstory behind the character’s tats. Me, I’m too big of a chicken, plus not really a fan of them. If I ever did get one, it would be all about the significance, and very personal, and not so much for artistic value.

    The House of Commare’ stories are amazing. I’m looking forward to digging into Out For Blood.

  29. Hi Kristen!! It’s Jan van Es!

    I apologize if it is has been asked before.

    Are you Team Mal or Team Creek when it comes to Chrysabelle?

    Can’t wait to read the new book!

  30. Due to a crappy monitor (trying to save up money for that and a new external) I cannot see the covers. However I have seen one. I remember being blown away by the sheer artistry of them.

    Did you have a hand/say in the cover?

  31. I’m so excited about this release, Kristin!!! Congratulations to you!

  32. If you could assign a song to the series or characters what song would that be?

    • That’s a tough one. Much of the first book was written listening to Evanescence, I can tell you that much. There’s another song called Blessed Hellride that a friend introduced me too and that was on replay a lot too.

  33. Have any of Chrysabelle’s kind refused to have gold sewn into their skin? I am not a fan of needles so I can’t imagine a design being sewn on!

    • Interesting question, Phoenix! In the world I’ve created, I can’t see any of the comarre doing that because the signum are so much a part of who they are. When you read the series, you see Chrysabelle undergo the inlay of some signum and you get a better understanding of how it’s dealt with.

  34. Happy release day. Would love to read this series. Hopefully I can get it soon.

  35. The gold tattoos are an interesting idea. Did it come from a tattoo or something you have seen?

  36. Thank you for the replies! I can’t wait to read your series!

  37. I love house you have tied the noble vampire houses to actual historical figures. When did that idea come to you and how? Who else from history would you love to come back to life as the undead?

  38. I know you from RD, and it’s such a thrill to see your books here! They’re already on my TBR, but of course, I’d love to win. ;)

    Good luck, and thanks for doing this appearance! I’m already fascinated by the world you’ve built!

  39. Oh, ink. *sigh* I’ve always had such a schizophrenic relationship with tattoos. I’ve always desperately wanted one, but it seems like I always alternated between being chicken and being broke. When I had my nerve (or my drink) up, I didn’t have enough money. When I had money, a lot of times I wimped out!

    Plus there’s the whole, “I have to live with this for the rest of my life — what do I get?”

    Heather

  40. elizabeth petula winmill

    I could never get up the nerve for a tattoo. My husband has some on his arms though. The book looks great I would love to win a copy.

  41. How interesting the meaning of the different markings. Such elaborate symbolism!

    I also have many (4) feline dependents. How many do you have?

  42. Wow, you have really held a variety of jobs. Other than writing, which was your favorite?

    If you could go back and rewrite from the beginning, would you change anything?

  43. Hi Kristen!!! I’ve always loved your covers and I’m very intrigued with the tattoos… really like the idea behind that :) I have ummm 8 or 9 myself :D some of them are old pieces that have new pieces and like the leaves around my shoulder are several smaller leaves (maybe 15?) so I’m not sure so I just counted that as one piece LOL! ;)

    My question for you is does your muse ever give you like 500 book ideas and you can’t focus on one? New to writing and my muse is all over the place :P I’ll start story A, then she’s like ohhh this is an idea so then B starts forming but then C, comes along and the first three aren’t done :P I’m just wondering if you have any focusing techniques to focus on just the one and get it done? LOL :) <3 Happy release day hon! I'm happy for you!

    I don't know if I have to post but I RSVPed ;)

    • Hi Chelsea! Usually when I get ideas, they aren’t fully formed “books” just ideas, so they don’t tear me away from what I’m doing. If they’re really good, I make notes for later. Usually, though, when I’m working on a series, the ideas I get are just more cool stuff to incorporate into the book I’m working on.

      • Ahhh thanks Kristen! I guess my muse is a bit more fickle! ;) Great idea on the using it for a story you’re already working on.. I did that with two series I was working on and kind of incorporated them together and I think it will be better for it :) I’ll have to try that with the other one ;) Happy Halloween!

  44. I love INK, but no I do not have any. I have considered several, and they were all a glimpse into who I am.

  45. I’ve read all three of the first three books and love this series. I especially loved that I got to read them back to back. Can’t wait to see what’s been happening in this awesome world.

  46. Wow, Kristen, those tattoos sound really interesting. The gold you mention being stitched into your heroine’s skin, is that something her people (the Comarre) do, or do the vampire nobles provide the gold to be stitched in?

    You’ve got me hooked, I’m going to have to check them out.

    Jenny (Is Not Weird Diva)

  47. You woke up this morning and realized you had been reincarnated as a pair of shoes.
    Describe yourself.

  48. Nope, no tats for me. I have this pic in the back of my mind of being 90 with a tat and it horrifies me worse than the idea of the needle.

    If a fairy godmother told you your life could be like a favorite book for 24 hours, which book would you pick and why?

    • Lisa, I’ve been thinking about your question, trying to come up with an answer, but my favorite books all have horrible things that happen to the characters! I guess Life of Pi wouldn’t be bad, but I’d have to be the tiger.

  49. Thanks for the great post! I have four tattoos that are very personal to me and I love reading/seeing the art others have. Your book(s) sound wonderful and I will add to my TBR list! Congrats on the release.

  50. Author’s Question – What about you? Do you have any ink? Does it define you? Or is it just a peek into who you are?
    My tattoos are a peek into who I am! I got my first one when I was 30, and my last one at age of 40. My husband and I have matching ones with Celtic knots, infinity symbol and a dragon head that celebrates our first wedding anniversary. My last one is a design I created that is personal to my beliefs and my family.

  51. Congrats on the new release…I’m definitely going to check this series out! How many books do you have planned for this series?

  52. I don’t have any ink…I keep looking but just can’t decide on one that says ‘me’

  53. Stephanie s from USA

    I’m on book two and I am really loving the series! Can’t wait to read them all!

  54. Stephanie s from USA

    I don’t have ink… Yet. I’m thinking about getting my daughters name or birthday. :)

  55. I have to say that I love the covers of these books! So cool. Have you had any artist renditions of any of the other charaters from the series? Like sometimes writers have trading cards or posters made?

  56. On average, how long does it take for you to write a book?

    • Blake, it takes about 6-7 months for me to get a first draft done, another month or two to polish. After it’s turned in, there are edits, then copy edits, then final pass pages. It’s a long process!

  57. I do have several tattoos, I love all but the 2 on my back, so thank god they’re on my back and not seen often. They were done when I was young and stupid. My son is 23 and he has some, he’s working on a full sleeve on his right arm, but at least he’s learned from my mistake and has thought out all his work and has worked with the tattoo artist to draw up some personal and meaningful work for him.

  58. I have to say, Kristen, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these books. No easy feat, when I’m mostly vampire’d out these days.

    What inspired you to create this world? Did the idea come from anything particular, like a movie, song, picture, etc? Or did it just magically poof into your head?

  59. So excited to read Out For Blood! Just downloaded it! What a unique concept – these stories are engrossing. The cover art is absolutely gorgeous too.

    Oh, and I’m Team Mal all the way ;)

    Congrats on the new release!

  60. I had Out For Blood preordered on Nook and downloaded it first thing this morning. Loving it so far and hope that I have more free time to read tomorrow.

    I also wanted to comment on the signum. I am heavily tattooed and know just how painful the process can be. I have to say that the back is one of the more painful areas because it’s so boney so when I read about Chrysabelle getting her signum redone over scar tissue (which hurts ten times worse) I cringed. All I could think was damn that girl’s a trooper. You’ve tortured that poor girl. I’m hoping at some point she’ll get a happy ending.

    Thanks for the oportunity and for sharing your fantabulous world with us. These books just get better-and-better and I can’t get enough.

  61. I have piercings and tattoos and I have to say that, for me, piercings are easier. Piercings hurt worse but they’re over a lot quicker. I can’t imagine sitting still for something that’s more painful and just as long! Though the pretty factor of gold on my skin might just make up for it…

  62. I was happy to see these available in audio, but I didn’t see them available at audible.com. Do you know if they will be? I don’t know how that works, if they have to buy rights to sell them or not.

  63. In you spare time what is your other hearts desire. Mine is my 24 gran babies and crafts. And how do you pick out your names.

    • Rebecca, I like movies and reading and I do enjoy a good workout! I love to play with my cats, too. My names…to be honest, they usually come to me. I will do some research online at baby naming sites, but mostly characters come to me with their names!

  64. What was the most difficult part of writing the series?.

  65. I have a set of multi-colored stars around and above my left ankle. I’m still working towards getting a second tattoo. I want to get an owl. I love the strength and wisdom it represents, but it has also been a re-occurring symbol in my life – so it fits. :) However, good artwork is expensive, so it might be awhile before I can finally afford it.

  66. I’ve gotta know where the name Chrysabelle came from!

  67. Welcome to BBB, Kristen. What kinds of things do you enjoy doing for relaxation?

  68. Hi, Kristen!

    I absolutely love your series. I’m so glad I happened by it on Goodreads one day. :)

    I’m a writer myself. My question is: What’s important to add into a story where you’ve made up the setting, like the city or world it takes place in?

  69. Congrats on the new release!! I am really enjoying the series so far, looking forward to more.

  70. When writing what is your favorite part of the story?

  71. series sounds great maybe a little dark but some times I like deep dark paranormal.

  72. What about you? Do you have any ink? Does it define you? Or is it just a peek into who you are?

    - I do not. But I have thought a lot about it and the main reason I can say that I dont is that I have not figured out what I want and where I would want it. I know so many people that do, and its always something that they love or that really means something to them. And if I was going to do it I would want the same.

  73. What books are currently on your nightstand and what has been your favorite this year?

    • I just finished Poison Princess by Kresley Cole, which was great. The books on my nightstand right now are about con men, a little research I’m doing for what will hopefully be my next series!

  74. Love the House of Comarre series, Kristen!

    How do you come up with the names of your characters? Did you establish their world and the unique characters first before creating the story? Or did the world evolve naturally from the initial story?

    Love the series and can’t wait for Last Blood!

  75. I would not even get an ink tattoo as I am not keen on pain, so, I am afraid the gold ones would be out of the question. as for that blood sucking vampire with the names of the people tattooed on his skin, he is one nasty character. what fun it must be to let your imagination go wild. annpa@gmail.com

  76. I have a tattoo. I got a breast cancer awareness tattoo last year right above my left ankle. It was my first and it was a free promotion one of the tattoo shops was doing. I am looking forward to getting some more this coming spring. I’m wanting to get something In memory of my dad, something for my kids, and i wanna add on to my current tattoo. I also have plans to get a best friend tattoo with one of my best friends but i’m not sure how that will work yet.

    What is your favorite Splurge for yourself on a day you’re just feeling low… ?

  77. Hi Kris
    I love the entire House Of Comarre series! Your world-building is awesome. The way you interweave the abilities of the various groups – vampires, shifters, fey. etc. helps make your world more believable. I’m looking forward to your next series – and the conclusion to this one.

  78. What was your favorite childhood book/series?

  79. Have you ever written fan fiction? For what fandom?

  80. If your mind were a house, what would it look like inside?

  81. Love the series, Kristen! Your teaser about the ending of this one has me intriqued. Any further hints? No, no! I don’t really want to know until I read it.

    Keep ‘em coming. It’s a wonderful (spooky, weird, upside-down) world you created.
    Marian

  82. Kristen,
    I love the whole backstory behind the tattoos. I never cease to be delighted with my own tattoo. So much meaning and pleasure with it. Book sounds fascinating.

  83. No, I have no tatoos and don’t intend to make any, not because of pain, but because they are too permanent. What if I get bored of them? I prefer charm necklaces and rings for letting everyone know what I like, and they are easy to remove.
    I’d like to try one of those temporary tatoos though, maybe chna on my ands.

  84. Hi Kristen! I love your books!! My question is, what are you working on now?

  85. Congrats Kristen! Can’t wait to read this one!

  86. I’ve never had the opportunity to read one of your books. My question is about the tattoos. Do all your main characters have tattoos, or is this specific to this book/series?

  87. I have 3 tattos myself. My first was a tramp stamp that says ‘DrkCherry’. My second is a couple of cherries surrounded by a banner with my two children’s names in it. And my third is a pair of cherries on the inside of my right arm.

  88. A little late to the party. But I just wanted to stop in and say that I am loving this series. I’ll be finishing up Flesh and Blood really soon and I can’t say how glad I am that I don’t have to worry that I’ll only have one book left!

    SO since you’ve started the last one in the series, have things turned out how you expected when you first started the series or were there some surprises?

    Thanks!

    Oh and it is so comforting to know that I’m not the only one whose mind, if it were a house would look like full of cats. Because from the pics on your blog, it looks like yours have a good amount of crazy like mine!

    Happy Halloween All!

  89. As for ink, I don’t have any. Yet! I know that I will and I know that as soon as I do I’ll probably get others too. I have to many ideas to just get one. When I do it will definitely mean something to me. It might not completely define me, but I think it will have little glimpses of me in them.

    And a question about the tattoos of the characters, did you have an immediate idea of how you wanted the tattoos to look, like with the character names? Or did you research it and find them that way?

    Thanks!

    • Rae, I answered your other post in a separate reply – forgot to hit reply on your original post, sorry! As for the tattoos, I always kind of envisioned Chrysabelle’s like traditional henna designs, so I did look at a lot of those online. For Mal, I always knew they were just the names of his victims. In my mind, they’d probably be written in each person’s handwriting.

  90. I’m so glad you’re loving the books, Rae! There have been some surprises along the way but I don’t want to say what they were because some would be spoilers! I’m really, really happy how the series turned out, though, and can honestly say I feel proud of the work. And yes, we have a houseful of cat craziness. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

  91. I love tattoos but don’t have any myself. I could never decide what to get, plus I have to take blood thinners and I worry that the extra bleeding would mess up the design :(

  92. I would love to get a tattoo of either a shamrock or sunflower, both of which remind my of my late grandfather, for different reasons. Or a purple butterfly or fairy, just because I love them :) But I don’t know if it would do alright with my blood thinners.

  93. No ink for me. I hate needles and I wouldn’t want anything permanent on my skin.

  94. Since you don’t have any tattoos yourself, did you have to go and do some research to get the idea for designs for your characters, or did you make them all up?

  95. I have always been intrigued by tattoos, but I have never been able to figure out where I would put one that wouldn’t make me sad by the time I was a grandma… :)

  96. Have you ever read a review from a fan/blogger that really moved you?

  97. Hi Kristen,

    I love your stories I really do. I am not a real book cover girl that isn’t what grabs me. Your covers broke that rule, I love them and the stories inside are great!

    Do you generally set one large or many small goals?

  98. What do you do to reward yourself when you reach your goals?

  99. Do you keep track of random plot bunnies as they pop up or do you let them run free and grow until you need them?

  100. What about you? Do you have any ink? Does it define you? Or is it just a peek into who you are?

    I am in the process of haveing 4 elemental pieces done I have Fire on the right leg knee to ankle, Earth on the right arm shoulder to elbow. I have a bunch of smaller pieces floating around band logo, lizard, earth dragon rainbow ying/yang….. I am also working putting together a tree of life for my back and buttocks and I am including visuals from my favorite books.

  101. Great description of these two characters. Amazing tattoos! Do you have any? Guess that has been asked before. But writing about tattoos with so much symbolism makes me thing you must.

  102. I don’t have any ink…yet. I love tattoos and would love to have one. I would have a quote or piece of scripture, it would mean something to me.

  103. I have the first two paperbacks sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read as we speak. I really need to purchase #3 & 4 soon so I can start reading this series. I really do love to read a series back-to-back when possible. I absolutely love the covers to this series! They are stunningly gorgeous!
    Thank you for the chance to win!

  104. No I don’t have any ink. I thought about it once but never went through with it.

  105. Got my copy of Out for Blood today in the mail! Can’t wait to start it!

  106. Do you listen to music while writing and if yes, do you listen to different types of music depending on the scenes that you are writing?

  107. I have no ink. I like tattoos on other people, but not on me!

  108. The gold tattoos sound incredibly painful, more so than the ink kind which I am too chicken to get. How did this come about?

  109. I don’t have any ink, but I like some tattoos on others.

  110. Just wondering since you said that there is going to be 5 books in this series do you have any idea what you might write next.

  111. I, too, live in Fl. Do you love it? Are you a native? I am a transplant from Pennsylvania. :)
    I have one tattoo on my upper arm. It wraps about half-way around my bicep and is tribal, with a heart in the center and the initial of my oldest son’s first name beginning and ending it. It was supposed to be my first to prepare me for an elaborate back tattoo, but sadly, I have not had the other done. I have a skin disorder that makes me a little more hesitant to get anymore.
    I love the idea of this series and their characters! That cover is gorgeous!
    Congrats on your new release also, Kristen!

  112. i LOVE this series so much Kristen, im so glad that you shared it with the world!I think that Chrysabelle has to be my favourite book character on my entire book shelf, I love it how she kicks butt and can protect herself instead of having to rely on some guy…

  113. I’ve read the first 2 books of your series and I loved them. Can’t wait to read the rest!

  114. I love your cover, do you get a say to what you want or how you want it done? I guess my question is how much input do you get for you covers?

  115. I have a tattoo and it’s partially hidden. I got a matching set with my sisters with our last name weaved into it. I think it’s just a peek into who I am and not what will define me.
