So many awesome elements all incorporated into one piece… usually I would hate a tattoo that runs straight down the back and doesn’t make use of the space on either side of the spine, but in this case, the negative space serves a design function, as the "corset" element. Clever design and beautiful execution.
This is my 6th tattoo. I got it in memory of my 4 great grandmothers. I grew up with all 4 of them and they all died within a year of each other (when i was 22). The sparrows always return to the same location when the migrate. In addition, once they find a mate they always keep them. As a maritime/sailing tradition it symbolizes that no matter how far a sailor travels, they will return home and be faithful. This tattoo is by Wes Schulz at DreamsCollide in Lancaster, PA
small tatt, and I love the placement.! I like it because that is deffinately something that I could cover up, and show. Like before I could cover stuff up, but it would be a hassle on mission trips (like the back of my neck, calf, ankle or foot) or work interviews( my forearm,) but this is great! Love it. Just might have to consider it.
