The original drawing for the dinosaur (clearer view, as it is difficult to photograph the 'whole picture' once the artwork is tattooed onto a 3D shape, ie. arm)

Still not sure what I'm going to do in the wings.

Three random tattoo ideas
This was taken for a photoshop challenge in Project Challenge. The phoenix "tattoo" symbolizes the last year of my life. First, as most people know, the phoenix is the legendary bird rising from the ashes. The 'S' shape in the bird's body is for my family's last name because if we could rise out of the fire, we can survive anything. This bird has two sets of angel wings, symbolizing God's protection and the two fire departments that responded. The set of three tail feathers represent the three members in my family who escaped the blaze and the three tear-shaped flames at the bottom are for our three kitties who perished.
