"Au milieu de l'hiver, j'ai découvert en moi un invincible été." - Albert Camus (in the depths of winter, I discovered there was in me an invincible summer) Awesome tattoo for after you beat cancer!!

Done by Kristin at Artisanal Tattoo in Somerville, NJ. Daffodils are my favorite flower. They are also the symbol of hope for a cure to the American Cancer Society, which is important to me since my mother, grandmother, grandfather, and uncle have all passed away from cancer. Definitely my favorite tattoo so far.

My latest tattoo. I lost my daddy almost 4 years ago this August to brain cancer. And even though he is no longer with us, his love goes with me everywhere. Love you papa.

I got this tattoo in memory of my grandmother who passed away four years ago due to brain and lung cancer. The rose represents four generations of women in my family and how amazing they are. Rose was my great grandmother’s name, and it is my middle name. All through my child hood all my gifts would be themed with roses, because they made me smile. The writing “All Our Love” was handwritten by my grandma, in the last card she wrote me before she passed away.
