This is an interesting photo to me. I have a scar on the same side of my rib cage, just below the shoulder blade. I had major lung surgery as a teenager and this tattoo sums up the experience perfectly.
Beautiful idea! "This is the Rod of Asclepius, the staff that the Greek God of Healing carried. It wraps around an incision scar, and it is a symbol of healing for the bone disease that I have lived with most of my life. It was done by Chris Escobedo of Elite Tattoos in Phoenix, Arizona."
