The design and themes of my tattoos: Keep in mind, Tigers are beautiful and my favorite animal, and most of my tattoos keep the style of the tiger stripes in them.
More specifics about my tattoo: 1st Tattoo was Hebrew, translating to "Life" or "The Lords". From there I had flowers stemming from the word as if growing from it with my 2nd Hibiscus Tattoo. I'm a beach bum, no worries.. I take good care of the artwork. but growing up surfing, you're gonna get some sun. After I had my little beauty I wanted to get a tiger on my right shoulder blade. I raised 5 tigers during my first year of college for "community service".. it was for a scholarship program! Which I successfully completed. but my Tiger represents my love for them. After that I decided to add the Orchids, which cover the whole right side and upper shoulders still stemming out of the Hebrew writing. They represent my love for my child and her beauty. Next I added on my right inside of my arm the Cancer ribbon for Cervical Cancer. I've had cancer twice and caught it both times.. just gotta keep getting those check ups :) Last added but certainly not least I am finishing a rib piece of Tiger Lilies. One more session and I should be done. I am getting the Tiger Lilies for a couple of reasons: 1. Its my nick name 2. My mom loves lilies and I love my mom an 3. Flowers are soo pretty! One different thing about all my tattoos is they are all outlined in brown. I think the color stands out better. Brown looks better on my skin also. My artist thinks I'm weird, but he does a great job!!
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My Favorite tattoo are the Orchids on my back. I decorated my daughters nursery in Orchids and they are forever a reminder of how much I love her and the beauty she is.
My next tattoo: I am really digging the 3-D tattoos. So I think I may have a Butterfly done soon.. Where? guess we will see :)
