Side Piece “Grandmother Memorial, First Tattoo”
About this tattoo
This tattoo was my first, which makes it already very special but this tattoo is also a memorial for my grandmother. I had wanted a tattoo for awhile, but I never imagined that this would be my first. My grandma died my senior year of high school after several botched surgeries. She was only 69 years old and always boasted of the longevity of her family and how she was always going to be there, even though she didn’t even make it long enough to see me graduate from high school. Being a senior in college now and the four year anniversary of her death coming up in February 2014, this post is harder to write than the others. My grandma and I were very close and I was beyond devastated when she passed, to be honest I still haven’t quite accepted it even though its been almost four years now. This tattoo means a lot to me and it worth the pain I went through to get it a million times over… R.I.P. Gram..
