The deer skull represents me, because my spirit animal is a deer. The triforce is to resemble my childhood, which I grew up with playing Zelda.
Each shape resmebles a very important person in my life: Diamonds for my mother whom loves diamonds and expensive items. Lines are for my father for his straight forward attitude and his consistency in my life. Circles are for my brother, he passed away 2 years ago. He was so important in my life, and also the circle stands for “the Circle of Life” Squares resemble my best friend Sara, whom I have known almost my whole life.
This is called the Tryzub: It is the national Ukrainian symbol. I got this tattoo because Ukrainian is my first language and I am very proud to be it. I got this done when I went to Vancouver, BC this past summer. This was done at Adrenaline - an awesome tattoo shop! Funny thing behind this tattoo is that my mom did not talk to me for 4 days when I got it because she absolutely hates tattoos.. I didn’t care ^_^
i am half thai, so i wanted a tattoo that represents my thai background. it was designed by a beach bum living in shack on a beach in hua hin, thailand. the tattoo is inspired by traditional thai decorative arts.
This is my minimalistic-grammic flower tattoo. One day I was at home doing nothing and I figured It would be fun to do a tattoo, so my brother has a tattoo machine and whenever I want a tattoo I go to him and get it right away…And we sat down and decided that this flower is very beautiful and it suits my quiet yet feminine personality.So I got that, I love it not only because it’s a beautiful tattoo but also because it is done by my brother and I will always have a piece of him with me!
These are my flowers on the front of my ribcage, directly below the ta-tas. The color will have been finished by the time this is published. This is my 5th tattoo (many more to come).
Dahlias, poppies, and marigolds have been my favorite flowers since I was very small, and every time I see myself in the mirror now I’m reminded of visiting a local Dahlia festival every year with my mom. This is my favorite so far and I can’t wait to have it finished.
