About this tattoo
I got this tattoo to signify my persevering after 16 major surgeries over a 3 year period for ulcerative colitis. I lost 70 pounds in 30 days after my first surgery and it was touch and go many times. I’m better now and wanted to do something significant to celebrate the fact I survived. With the help of my tattoo artist we came up with this design. There will be an additional piece added to the lower half of the back later with a sword coming down from the skull and a Phoenix wrapped around with fire and brimstone at the bottom.
