The design and themes of my tattoos: My newest tattoo is a mandala/lotus/dreamcatcher, no colour work involved, all line work and tiny bit of shading, the theme for this tattoo (for me) is peace within myself for finally following my dreams. My chest piece is a black and grey realism piece, it represents (to me) letting go and the ability to finally be free. My arm tattoo is a skull in a rose, I had this for my 18th and it was my second tattoo, it's a milestone of my life. Finally my first tattoo...is my first tattoo! its a really simple gothic creepy cartoon lady, mostly black with a splash of purple in the "detail".
More specifics about my tattoo: My chest tattoo consists of a death moth in the center of the piece with a side profile of a woman each side of it, exhaling smoke slowly, with a pair of open eyes underneath the moth with smoke all around. My upper arm tattoo is a skull in a rose with a kind of vortex around it, the rose is coloured a dark pink/red colour making it stand out. My first tattoo...located on the front of my thigh, is small, cartoon in style and was meant to represent me at the time (now it kind of represents bad decisions and to be patient for things) Finally my mandala/lotus/dreamcatcher is just that, all line work with slight detail in the feathers that hang from the lotus mandala. This is located on my lower arm and the same arm as the skull in a rose tattoo.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favourite tattoo is my full chest piece, it is my largest tattoo, people were shocked as to why i got such a big tattoo...my answer...i wanted it. I did it in one sitting, which was 6 and a half hours, even the artist was surprised at that! He said he was having difficulty finishing a half chest piece on a fully grown man because he cannot stand the pain for more than 1 hour! For me this tattoo has shown me what I can take and that I have been thinking too little of myself.
My next tattoo: my next tattoo I am hoping to get a flower and branch sleeve for my 21st! The flower being dog roses (runs in my family) each represents a member of my close family (mum, dad, brother and sister, buds to show family growth in the future etc.
