They instantly ran out of bracelets and were asked for more, that is when these two graduates realized that these bracelets could be a lot more. They ended up partnering with the two artisans in Costa Rica and much more around the world to make these bracelets.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning. You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki” means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris” means “light in darkness.”

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora” is translated literally as “Towards greater things.” It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyphs means “explore.” It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

7 Things Retail Workers Are Sick Of

For the love of GOD, do NOT do #4!

I've worked in retail for about a year now and every time when I come in for a shift, I always encounter something new. Customers do many things and most of them, believe it or not, are aggravating to the sales staff.

If you do any of these, it's not necessarily a bad thing, but us sales associates are politely asking you to change your ways. Without further ado, here are my 7 largest retail pet peeves.

1. People throwing their credit card/money at you...

While I appreciate your enthusiasm, it would be greatly appreciated if you didn't throw money at me while I'm ringing you up. You don't even know the total yet.

2. ...Or people jamming their credit card into the reader prematurely

Out of everything on this list, this has to be the one that grinds my gears the most. Let me let you in on a secret: The computer cannot and will not read your card before I've hit 'total' on the monitor.

So if you carelessly force your card into the chip reader before I tell you to, expect an exasperated look from me.

3. Customers who unfold things to 'see what it looks like' and not folding it back up

If you leave something unfolded and don't at least attempt to fold it back up, we will not be happy. Recovering the store and refolding everything that customers messed up takes a long time. Any attempt you make to fold clothes or hang clothes back up would be appreciated.

4. When a customer pulls something from the middle of the stack, leaving the rest of the stack messed up

In terms of the most aggravating thing you could do, this is right up there with jamming your credit card into the chip reader before we tell you to. News flash: Clothes do fall and they do land on customers who promptly yell at us when we didn't mess up the piles.

We try to keep the store as neat as possible and you callously pulling something from the middle of the stack and messing up the rest of it is so time-consuming to fix.

5. Being on your phone at the register

Or while you're trying to talk to us for that matter! Talking on your phone in a store is not only inconsiderate, it's like a slap in the face to us associates when you're trying to talk to us, but someone's on the other line.

Just hang up your phone when you enter a store, we'll be so much happier if you do.

6. Shopping with your kids

I get it. You don't want to leave your kid home alone and there's no one to watch them so you take them with you. But know this: our store isn't your babysitting service.

I've had kids running laps around the store, I've had kids screaming and crying, and I've had kids pulling things off of shelves all with no supervision. If your kid comes shopping with you, make sure you keep them near you at all times so I don't find them in the dressing room ripping tags off of clothing (it's happened).

7. Leave the clothes you don't want in the dressing room

We don't leave that empty clothing rack in the dressing room for the decor of it. Please take everything you don't want and put it on the rack outside of your dressing room. The worst customers are those that leave their mess behind for us to clean up.

As much as we don't like to say it, these things do really bother us. Make your shopping experience--and our jobs--easier and be a thoughtful shopper!
