my 3rd tattoo. i got a peacock because my best friend growing up lived on a farm and they had peacocks and whenever one would go missing i would ask her dad why he didn’t keep them in cages so that they wouldn’t run away and he always said the same thing “sweetheart, they are too beautiful to be kept in a cage.” this brings back so many memories and it is a reminder that we are all too beautiful to be caged. tattoo done at Mean Street Tattoo in Syracuse, New York.
This is my dad’s new Celtic cross tattoo, the roses are my sister and I. He’s been thinking about this tattoo for a long time, and finally got it; it covers up a lizard he got years ago. He was actually turned down by a number of artists, because the knotting is so intricate, if it was messed up it couldn’t be fixed. This picture is after the second or third sitting, he’s had more work on it since then.
