My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo is my back piece. It is a huge cancer ribbon with angel wings. It is for my father who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer almost 2 years ago. He is the strongest man I know and I have been taking care of him and his strength & courage is remarkable. When he first got diagnosed he wasn't even supposed to survive the weekend and even after 2 major operations and a colostomy put in he has pulled through. I had a fundraiser to raise money for Make-A-Wish and The American Cancer Society and we were able to grant a child's wish by selling raffle tickets for gift certificates that the tattoo shop I go to donated!! Unicorn Ink North Providence, RI. My family & I have been faced with a lot of tragedies and my personal way of dealing with things is to get some ink!! So in honor of my fathers continuous fight I went and sat for 5 hours for my first session and came home and surprised him!!!
My next tattoo: My next tattoo will be my other arm sleeve. It is going to be a portrait of my son & I in black and grey and black roses as a background.
