This is my very first tattoo, and is about 6 months old now. It says, “This too shall pass,” which is a phrase my mom has been telling me for years, and has gotten me through some rough times in my life. It’s also made me appreciate the good times even more, so I thought it was perfect for my first leap into the tattoo world.
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
