The design and themes of my tattoos: My tattoos are more a collage of pieces that i have gathered for the past 9 years. Themes range from memorials, to traditional, to new school, all coming together into two all color sleeves.
More specifics about my tattoo: One sleeve and 1/2. Both armpits are done and merge with sleeves. I also shaved and tattooed both sides of my head.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: I love all my tattoos but my favorite so far and forever is my 5th tattoo: Two very simple red roses on my forearm, with an intertwined banner with my grandparents names SUSANA and ISRAEL written one on top of other. I got this tattoo about 5 years ago when my revered and beloved grandfather fell terminally and abruptly ill. On his last days my mother showed him and my then healthy grandmother, a picture of the tattoo (I was not there) and they smiled and cried together. this tattoo is my favorite because its the only tattoo i have tis meaningful to someone other than myself.
My next tattoo: Probably another band tattoo, since one of my favorites, Rocket From The Crypt, reunited this year. But I'm impulsive and if a life events may inspire a new piece. who knows?
