The design and themes of my tattoos: Almost all of the tattoos represent a part of my life and have deep meaning behind them. They are all extremely detailed and vibrantly colored. If I had to pick a theme for them all rolled into one, I would say they are Melissa themed!
More specifics about my tattoo: It doesn't matter where I am work, the grocery store or walking down the street, I am constantly being praised or asked about my tattoos. People are always amazed with how vibrant the colors are and the amount of detail they contain. I've been told more than once,"every time I look at your arms I find something new!" I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: Left arm sleeve. It is a large twisty tree with with dark caverns, flowers and little bugs crawling in and out. It represents my life, my struggles and my perseverance. "Out of darkness, death, and destruction comes new life, beauty, and growth."
My next tattoo: I literally went from my first little tattoo the size of a nickel to having my entire back done. It's a sleeping baby dragon on the small of my back dreaming of himself all grown up, big and strong. In a nut she'll it stands for even the small weak and innocent have such strength with.
