Idea(s) for a tattoo: Stories, myths, folklore, symbols/icons, quotes, lyrics, that deal with blindness or feature blind characters. In the case of a quote, it doesn't necessarily have to be by an actual blind person.

Ok, so I've got an eye condition that will eventually render me almost completely blind (Retinitis pigmentosa, for anyone interested), and I'd like to somehow incorporate that fact into my next tattoo. I just don't know exactly how. I'm open to any ideas really, from something extremely simple to really elaborate.
My first idea was to find something in Japanese folklore related to the blind that I could use to design a traditional irezumi style half-sleeve, but the farthest I got was the Wikipedia article about the Tōdōza and Zatoichi, so if anyone could provide some more info in that direction in particular, that'd be great.
