Hometown: San Antonio, TX
The design and themes of my tattoos: The theme of my tattoos are different varies of oriental designs. I was inspired by my mother's tattoos. Her character gave off a "cool-hip" kind of person with her tattoos and she made me want to be just like her. My tattoo also show who I am too. I am Hispanic, but love the oriental culture. I try to incorporate both parts and try to make unique designs that represents me.
More specifics about my tattoo: All my tattoos have a story and a reason behind them. My body is my temple to the fullest.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo would be my 'Foo Dog' on my chest or my 'Sunflowers with Eyes' on my shoulders. The 'Foo Dog' is my protection and guide to a better life. The placement on my chest shows others around me that I am protected from all forces of evil and a guardian of my own being. The 'Sunflowers with Eyes' have two meanings. They represent my favorite flower and my eyes too. The green eyes are the only color inked on my body. I wanted this tattoo to show people that eyes are the "gateway to the soul".
My next tattoo: My next tattoo would be my Octopus Tentacles on my bottom. I would like to keep all my tattoos the same theme or similar to the theme. It will be all black and grey work and will come around my hips, the top of the back of my legs, and lower back.
