Autism - Tattoowise
So last xmas i've been building up the courage, and the dosh to get my first ever tattoo! Now some might wonder what the big thing is about getting one but for me, well.. i have a phobia of needles, i have NO pain level whatsoever that you could call easy to put up with, i mean, i'm the girl that get's a paper cut and i'm dyin! so finally i'd the cash, finally ran out of excuses and finally found a tattoo shop that i felt comfortable with. So yesterday was the big day. went down, got sorted and explained what i was after. As most people on here, facebook and whoever know me, will know my son is autisic, so for my first tattoo i wanted to dedicate it to him. I got the autism awareness ribbon and the flag because i'm a winner! I've got the most loving, careing, smart and funny little boy in the world. (ok, so i'm biased but i'm allowed to be) he gives me great joy, he teaches ME something new everyday, I'm learning HIS world and how to adapt ours to suit his needs and i love hearing

That little purple daisy has become part of my own healing as I begin to accept my daughter's diagnosis. I love the transformation from a simple flower to my own version of the symbol for autism.
Out with the old. Covered up an old tattoo with something more meaningful.
Three random tattoo ideas

Bunga Terung (eggplants flower) is a popular tattoo from the borneo. belong to the Iban Tribe or commonly called the Head Hunters during the White Rajah era. the tattoo is to memorializes the tranformation of the iban tribe child to adult. yeah, its mean your a man now! The swirl in the middle is called " the tali nyawa" which means the rope of life that symbolize the person life force and the beginning of a new journey(as adult).The petals surrounding the Tali Nyawa symbolize the Strength and Power. this is the first time ever i promoted the Native of Borneo tattoo arts. i'm not so into tattoos but living here in sarawak where there are bout 180 plus ethnics with tons of believe and hold different religion. we manage to make an understanding with each others without any problem all this long years living together. since most of the tourist would take this tattoo home as a souvenir. i remembered the iban tattoos being feature in miami ink a few years back, if im n
