Birthstone - Tattoowise
I know the general idea that this has been done before many times with the hand forming the shape of a heart of the belly. However, I thought it would be neat if one hand from each parent was involved. Both have a tattoo on their ring finger on the left hand. When I asked what it was they said something on the order of an 'engagement tattoo' or at least that's how I remembered it. The ring has a date stamped in it, I'm assuming it's a mothers ring and the date is the little boys birth date.
My good friend Siah's girlfriend Mandi, who has also become a good friend to me, has a beautiful tattoo of this elegant gypsy on her arm. this is a close up her face and the stone above it... the face coincidentally and strikingly resembles Mandi herself.
Three random tattoo ideas
The first part of this tattoo was done, in Waikiki Beach, Hawaii, February 2005. It was done free-hand by a Samoan tattoo artist named "Q". The upper half was done, free-hand, by "Fatty" in DC. Fatty continued the theme and patterns to create this Hawaiian totem.
