Tattoos-Day : Thicker than Water October 27, 2009Posted by jeneypeney in bad-ass-ness, shenanigans, tattoos-day, the famn damily.
Ink #8: Family
Design: Five Shooting Stars from bra-line to panty-line
Location: Right Ribcage
When: Summer ’08 – After Graduation
Pain Scale: Nine out of ten
Artist: Joey Drada
This piece is the largest piece on my body and I plan on expanding on it. There are five shooting stars and each one represents a member of my family. Each star has the initials of the person inside and I chose their colors as I see each of them.
Blue is for my Mom because she is always strong and true – like the sea and the sky.
Orange is for my Dad because he can always find a way to laugh at a situation, no matter how grim or upsetting it may be.
Pink is for me… because I like pink.
Purple is for the older of my two brothers because he had recently come out of the closet and this was my very small way of showing him I support him (I did a larger one later… you’ll see that next week).
Green is for my youngest brother because no matter how old he gets, he will always be that little snot of a twelve year old in my head.
When I have children, I plan on adding moons with their initials into the design.
