Occupation: Model, Bellydancer
The design and themes of my tattoos: mythical,animals
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite is my surrealist bird on my side- it's tail goes about 1/2 way down my thigh, it is peacock inspired. I always thought peacocks were beautiful but being a traveler and wanderer I picked up and moved across country to CA for a while and resided in an area where peacocks lived in the wild and I became really interested in them, turns out a lot of the foods they survive on are considered poisonous to other animals and because of this in certain cultures peacocks represent not only surviving in but thriving in difficult situations. In CA I struggled and was living in my car or sometimes a tent but the experience really was a big and important and enjoyable part of my life and this tattoo represents that. Me and my boyfriend drew it together in an artistic collaboration.
My next tattoo: Oh man I am not sure! most recently was the addition of the phases of the moon coming out of my ankh piece [about last week] but I am also still currently working on getting my peacock piece colored in [it's about 1/2 way done] and then I intend to add some flowers in around it :]
