"Lotus - A flower that rises from the mud. The deeper the mud, the more beautiful the lotus blooms." I am definitely getting a lotus tattoo after the one for my grandfather. I don't care how cliche it is. It just fits <3
Chicago resident and grandmother Helen Lambin likes it when young people stop her on the street to give her compliments on her tattoos, or when they simply yell out, “Nice ink!”. She enjoys the fact that her tattoos have helped create connections with strangers, of different generations and cultures. The idea for getting a tattoo came to her three years ago when she was feeling down about growing older. One led to another, and then another. Now that's some awesome shit!
