Dorothy you're not in the Texas anymore! At least I think you're not - isn't that supposed to be Oz? I love the symmetry - or should I say the continuity?

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. :)

My favorite. Beautiful work by a talented artist, on a subject clearly dedicated to the art form. That was time consuming and painful, but is simply stunning.

I wish the artist would have worked on this more instead of just using something already out there- it ruins the one line look the rest of the tattoo has.
