My favorite tattoo and the story behind it
My back piece!! It's obviously my favorite since I sat through 1 x 4 hour sitting per week for 4 months, lol :] I wanted this design on my back forever... I originally had it as a painting / wall hanging, and I knew immediately I wanted it on my body. I love the sense of balance of dark and light, good and evil, combining to make one whole existence... I feel it really sums up my personality and my beliefs about the world. It wasn't until I met a great tattooist who was prepared to cut me a deal that I was able to get it done... something like this would obviously be very expensive normally and I am SO grateful to have been able to have this wonderful artwork done on my skin.
My first tattoo and the story behind it
I got my first tattoo when I was just turned 18 and I had just left home and moved away to London. I got the flaming heart on my right ankle. To me it signified freedom, and the design itself represents my fiery, passionate nature, and it is to remind me to live and be guided by my passion.
My next tattoo
I want to build up the flames on my left shoulder & chest - I add more flames each year I go to Burning Man :] The flames go with the Burning Man symbol on my chest. I want to get a few more small tattoos, maybe one on the inside of my elbow, and a small one on the back of my neck, maybe some vines around the heart on my ankle :] Just finishing touches really.
