I know this looks depressing but it is actually funny.... My best friend and I are just sure David Lynch ( director of Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet etc.) is actually directing our lifes... LOL... so when we see weird omens we call each other and say OMG I've been lynched! The cherry blossoms represent each of us. It is also my avatar.
This is a memorial to my Grandfather. It is a combination of tattoos he had. I updated a heart he had to a sacred heart, incorporated the banner, that used to have a girls name on it but he forgot what it was and it had faded. LOL and put a saying I thought he would like in Latin ( Est Dues in Nobis = There is a God in each of us.) and 4 nautical stars he got while he was in the Merchant marines.
I have two more tats but I don't have pics of them. Joan of Arc in flames and my birth year on my pinky. I have an appointment to get one this week of a raven and another appointment after that to get a cherry and the word reclaimed. Another inside joke with some friends... Our tattoo guy is laughing that he is giving all the girls back their cherries.
I am lucky, he is a good friend and the ones I have had to pay for have been half price. The raven is to be a gift from him.
