Self-portrait, Dancing Tree Design by Igor Zenin, tattoo by Peter of Savannah Ink, Savannah, Ga.Birds by Chad of Body Tech, Gainesville, FL.
This is my “I refuse to sink” tattoo. To me, it means I will not let anything bring me down, and I will not sink to other people’s levels. I just got it done about three hours ago, Malissa Booth, at Madam Voodoo’s did it. She is an AMAZING artist.
This is my first tattoo and i am proud of it. This tattoo symbolises motto of my life. Everytime i see it, it says to me that i have to decide Here & Now and that’s why i choose these words to have on my hand for rest of my life.
My Grandad recently passed away. I miss him terribly. He will always be a Sailor. My Father is a Sailor. My Uncles, too. From The U.S. Navy & The Royal Australian Navy to Whaling Captains off the coast of New Zealand. This is for the men in my life. I Love You Guys.
This is my first tattoo and right now the most meaningful. When I was just 7 years old I was diagnosed with Leukemia, a certain type of cancer. It was really rough on my family and myself but we got through it and I’ve been in remission for about 5 years. It’s been 7 years since I was first diagnosed and I’m 15 now. The black birds represent the struggles I’ve faced in the past during this fight and the Orange bird represents the Leukemia survivors ribbon color. The orange bird is a reminder to myself that in the end everything is going to be fine and I’ll be okay. My tattoo artist is amazing. Everyone calls her Ch-Ch-Ch-Chavez and she’s truly talented and amazing and she helped make this experience of my first tattoo memorable. ♥
