The design and themes of my tattoos: Sleeve - Dias de Los Muertos
Back - Asian themed with koi fish, flowers, temples, birds and scorpions that represent me and my son as we're both scorpios.
More specifics about my tattoo: My first few tattoos I received when I was a teenager. 3 of my original tattoos have been covered up. My tattoo artist Raoul DeSoto did an amazing job covering them up. I kept one of my original tattoos that my artist incorporated into my back design.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo is one of my mom when she was younger. She has been very sick, so I wanted to pay tribute to her. She is designed as a dias de los muertos girl with sugar skulls around her. This one is a work in progress. Already had 3 sessions for this one and will need to finish my sleeve.
My next tattoo: My next tattoo is going to finish off my sleeve. It is a skeleton mariachi and a skeleton senorita dancing arm in arm with a old school mexican church/town in the background. Then after that I'm going to finish off the fairy background scenery around my ankle.
