"none of my prayers was answered". Sorry, but I'm very very penickity about grammar.
And anyway, the chances of getting your prayers answered is equal to the chances of the things you pray for happening anyway. So either increase the number of prayers, or make it something more realistic. Ie, if you prayed once a year for your great aunt to be cured of cancer, why not try praying for everybody you know who has cancer? One of them is bound to 'work'. Alternatively, why not pray that your great aunt gets a compfy bed? You're more likely to get that 'answered' too.
Is that a legit reason to be mad? Of course not. It's your own fault for thinking what you prayed for was going to happen in the first place. If I expect my wife to bring home 2 pints of milk, then I realise 2 weeks later that I a) don't have a wife and b) don't have any milk. That's not a good reason to be angry. I was being an idiot.
Good enough reason to get the tattoo you wanted, no. But if it looks cool, and you like it, then go for it already.
