Flower Shoulder Tattoo
I got this tattoo after a trying three and a half year period that included moving to Colorado by myself, not knowing a soul there, completing graduate school, while enduring a tumultuous relationship, running a business and getting extremely ill.
It was the most difficult period of my life and I wouldn’t change a single painful minute for it helped me learn a tremendous amount about myself and I grew exponentially. Through it all, my parents supported me from a distance. The top two flowers represent them and the rest my growth and future growth as a person.
While perusing Jen’s book, I spied a full back piece of flowers and butterflies that she created and I knew that she was the artist I was going to. I gave her the concept (three flowers on my shoulder and flowers cascading down to my elbow) and she created this beautiful piece. I’ve had it since 2006 and love it more each day.
