The design and themes of my tattoos: Ocean, music, travel, and my loyal pitt-mutt that saved my life.
More specifics about my tattoo: Some of these pictures are before and some are after my half-sleeve. I use to model for the travel industry in Hawaii, but when you get a tattoo you give up your modeling career in the tourist industry. I loved modeling and I'd like to do it again for an industry that accepts ink.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My half sleeve started out as an idea for a back piece. I drew it like a "self-portrait" of what makes me who I am, (a mermaid playing the guitar/ukulele with the world at her hip and dog by her side). When I finally went into the tattoo shop 4 years later, I asked my artist to recreate it into a half sleeve and he did an epic job.
My next tattoo: I would like to make my current half sleeve a full sleeve by doing an underwater scene below my elbow, (below the land).
