Beautiful tattoo, but it's not gonna age well. Small ink tends to bleed together over time.

Ok I need to get something like this! I was raised in Pittsburgh (or you can say the city is my "roots") But now I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, which I believe will forever be my home. :)

I hope that's henna otherwise I would hate to think of all the pain she endured only to have them fade away! Very cool anyway...

it's not cling film people, it's a special type of plaster made to stick to the skin, so the tattoo underneath can start healing without risk of anything getting into it. as a tattoo artist, I NEVER use antibiotic creams, just natural coco butter or simply vaseline... adding too much stuff isn't good for a tattoo, the best is to let your body heal up mostly by itself.

That break between the two should have been on the elbow but apart from that - lovely.
