New Things: Snowflake Tattoo

15.3.13

I apologise for recycling an instagram picture...but photographing a tattoo nicely seems to be a struggle for Ed!
I like to think of my tattoos as charms; every one of them has meaning, but (with the exception of the quotes) they're all hidden and symbolic.  I got this tattoo to commemorate becoming an aunty.  Towards the end of last year I was thinking about getting a snowflake and linking it to this but ended up putting it off and forgetting about it.  Then my beautiful niece was born, and on the day I met her it snowed.  The first snow of the year.  Getting this tattoo was a done deal.

    I have one tattoo, a quote that I got for my 18th that me and my Dad designed and it is by far the best thing I've done I think :)

    1. It's a little bigger than I originally wanted, but the tattooist said it would look more in proportion this size...I like how it turned out! x

    1. Haha! Her Dad doesn't really like tattoos, so although me and my sister know what it's for, I'm not sure I'll ever let anyone else know! When I think about it, feels a bit strange to think that she may never know it's for her! x
