My Family Leg Tattoo
by LA Cook
(Red Wing, MN)
It is my first tattoo. I had it done for my 35th birthday. The design was created by a 16 year old boy, a friend of my sons.
It is a family tree at least in my eyes our my family flower bush. The large darker yellow rose is myself. Being my birthday is in Nov and the color stone is topaz or yellow. Also my favorite flower is a Yellow Rose.
The rose buds are my 3 sons. The center bud is for my oldest son who passed away. Under his bud is his birthstone the diamond. On each sides, the other buds represents my other two sons, with their birthstones under their buds.
The little color butterflies represent my Goddaughters whom this entire family is very close to and they us. Each Goddaughter's butterfly is her own favorite color.
The work was done by Kevin at Red Wing Tattoo. Since then he has done the other 5 pieces I have had done.
