Tattoos are a very personal art etched indelibly unto the owner. I have become fascinated by them, not the actual piece but rather the emotional connection between the art and the canvas.
Each piece of art is unique because each person has their own story for wearing it. I hope you enjoy these wonderful people and their stories as much as I do.
If your body art has a story to tell, please contact me, I'd love to give it breath.
The tattoo is a memorial piece for my son. It says his birthdate and the words below say "too beautiful for earth" on the day of his funeral my mom presented me with a framed poem that said "an angel opened the book of life and wrote your babies day of birth, then closed the book and said too beautiful for earth" this piece means more to me then any other tattoo on my body. Its a symbol of strength to me and and understanding of how precious life is. The foot prints close to my heart are his exact footprints taken from the hospital ink pressing. He will always be my son. And if it wasn't for that moment in time i could have walked a very different and difficult path in life.
Actually, I hated this character in the first season of the "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic" show. I thought she was so annoying. But then she grew, and I realized that no matter how dark things got she always found a reason to smile. So, in my book, she gets to be a princess as well. Pinkie Pie reminds me that even in my darkest of times, I need to find it in me to smile.
My tattoo is a symbolic reminder to embrace and accept both the good and the bad decisions I make, as they all contribute to who I am.
I worked in palliative care for many years, developed relationships, and held hands with hundreds of people that have passed away. It wasn't until I experienced a deep personal loss at the same time as my 40th birthday. I honoured all the loss with celebrating all the Love with this tattoo on my neck.
