Inked Girls: Christine Eve Falcon
Myself in a sentence: Aspiring tattoo artist and musician.
The design and themes of my tattoos: I love skulls and roses. I have always been fascinated with them since I was a little girl. So my left sleeve consists of skulls and a few roses, a scroll that says, 'Am I Dreaming?' on it, & the number 9 right above my left elbow. As you make your way down my arm to my wrist, that's where you'll find my 'TRIUMPH' tattoo. Above my right knee is a tattoo of a cub I did on myself followed by a design I did but on my foot. The back of my neck has my family's nickname "DAMOA" tatted followed by my back tattoo. This consists of somewhat of a Polynesian tribal with a turtle and a latte stone incorporated into it. My left inner-calve is a feather with the initial "M" right below it. Lastly, I have a tiny latte stone on my wrist.
More specifics about my tattoo: You hear see I mention about something called a Latte stone and in sure you don't know what it is exactly, some of you! The Latte Stone are stone pillars of ancient houses known for their two-piece construction; They consist of two parts which is the supporting column (halagi), then topped with a capstone (tasa). It is the signature of the Marianas Islands (Guam, Rota, Saipan, Tinian, Pagan). They are found primarily in the Mariana's and come in massive sizes! Lastly, they are made from coral limestone that the islands first Chamorros carved by hand!
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: "TRIUMPH"
The word "TRIUMPH" would be my favorite tattoo as well as one of the many tattoos that I've done on myself! We all know it means, a great achievement or victory. So when one of my original songs, Am I Dreaming?" made #1 on Power 99's "Miller Lite Six Pack Attack countdown" which is Saipan's local (not to mention the BEST) radio station for weeks, I decided to get it done. Eventually I got "Am I Dreaming?" Tatted on me as well which is located on the back of my left shoulder.
My next tattoo: I want my next tattoo to be a hibiscus flower breaking of into the wind like how a dandelion would, but instead the dandelion seeds would be replaced with baby turtles making their way into the water. The hibiscus flower signifies my birthplace (which is an island that is a part of the Northern Marianas Islands) called, Saipan. Now, the baby turtles would signify me and all my fellow islanders leaving our "rock" and exploring new places of the world. Home will always be home. It'll always be there, & it's definitely not going NO WHERE!
