04/28/2006 - Third 7 hour Session - Memorial Sleeve Tattoo (19 hours)
I got this tattoo on Dec 30 2005. My grandmother (nonna in Italian) passed away Aug 16, 2005. She was an angel, and meant alot to me and my sisters so we are each getting this tattoo (a variation of it) to remember her by. My younger sister got hers but my twin sister had to wait because she was pregnant when we got ours. This is what the tattoo looks like today, a year later. This is my fourth tattoo.
this pic and the next couple were taken right after I got back from Mexico where I got the flowers on this tattoo redone for the third time. The first time the flowers were yellow/orange and too pale (because they aren't outlined in black) so the tattooist redid the flowers with brighter colours but then when it peeled during the healing process all the new colour came out. A month later I went to Puerto Vallarta and got a guy there to redo them in pink. This time it worked. I LOVE them in pink. And the lettering is exactly what I wanted.
in memory of my dad
I got these tattoos with a year between them. As with everyone of my tattoos there is a story behind them. I got Minning (Memory) shortly after my parents house burned down, the house I'd grown up in. Everything was lost, even down to my birth certificate and childhood teddy bears! The top floor of the house had gone worse, the fire had started next to the room that had been mine since I was a kid... though it wasn't mine any more but my brothers but many of my things were there. My parents lost everything but themselves, us (their children) and the animals... they didn't even have clothes to change. Most of the things that should have made us smile as we grow older, like pictures and belongings of the past were gone. I got the word Minning (Memory) for that reason. Even though I don't have the physical things... I still have what's in my heart and mind... Von (Hope) was a tribute t
Still fresh,scabby and itchy..needs a little touch up soon to show the moon better which is tucked above the tree over to the outside of my bicep.
My Daughter's tattoo in memory of her Mum.
As many of you know our mother passed away recently (Jan 10th). In memory of her me and my sister decided to get a matching tattoo to show our respects, our sorrow and our faith in knowing she is in a much better place. The design was worked on by myself and my long time friend and one of my mothers 'other' children, Philip Manuel. He also actually did the tattoo work himself. The design was to show her love of God and her passion for angels, she often referred to us as her angels. I know many do not agree with tattoos and she had mixed feelings herself but I think she looked down on us and approved. Thank you Phil, she would have loved it. Also, thank you everyone else for your support, respect and understanding.
I realized today that I haven't done a 365Days shot of my tattoo yet. It's on the inside of my left ankle, in memory of Mom... I've been thinking a lot lately about getting another one. There are three or four that I want: a quote on the inside of my right foot, a spider on my ribs, possibly something on or right behind my ear, and possibly a sacral chakra on my lower waist. I just can't decide for sure on a quote, or I'd go ahead and get that one. I have a few in mind though... I know one of these days I'm going to suddenly make up my mind and then within a few days I'll have tattoo number two. Just not sure right now when that will be, haha. Hopefully soon - the tattoo bug has bitten (after a year and a half of having this tat!).
