My favorite tattoo and the story behind it
The quarter sleeve on my left arm. It represents my good friend Paul [baby] that passed away in 2009. That was one of the most life changing years I have come across in my days, for uncountable reasons. My original idea for the tattoo was to have the background as an autum leaf, and on the veins of the leaf have all the things that are on the tattoo now to be hanging from the veins..my leaf of life. When I met with Dave Skellie in Melbourne, FL and handed him a web I had made with the ideas that i had put together, he drew me out two sketches to choose from..and this was the second one. A beautiful collaboration if you ask me..with SO much meaning.
My first tattoo and the story behind it
My first tattoo is what I just described in "My favorite tattoo & story behind it" section..but I can go more into detail about the true meaning of it. The anchor on the inner most side is clearly for my friend, with 'Paul Baby' and the years of his precious life written inside. Dancing is one of my deepest passions in life, [Passion is also written on the top right of my shoulder] and inside the dancer you can see a peace symbol. I work parts of the year in the Northern California mountains, and I have lived a few years of my life on the beach sides of Melbourne and Saint Petersburg Florida, explaining the mountains and the mermaid. The butterfly is a symbol for long life, and change, [ALL of 2009 was about change, as I now find that everyday is really about change and letting go] as the hummingbird symbolizes love [which is also written on the back side of my arm] and joy. The fire, can stand for a few things..but I will say more than anything, it tells how Paul has kept my fire going..through life and death, he has made me the strong woman that I have become today. The autumn leaves remind me of some of my best, and some of my worst, years in Michigan, my hometown. Reminds me of the people I love, the ones that showed me hate, and to appreciate every single one of them for helping me, become me.
My next tattoo
My next tattoo is going to be my entire back. I am an
Aquarius, so it is going to be a fantasy theme based with a beautiful woman giving life to the world with her water. Or, it will be a center piece on my chest of the heart chakra.
