getting a tattoo similar to this when im 18, its gonna be smaller, and with the words "tills vi möts igen" written under ; meaning until we meet again in swedish. the tree will be bare, except for one leaf. that leaf will be symbolizing my aunt who died this past summer. RIP Aunty Maryanne
I think I want a family tree. When we got married the oak tree was a symbol we used, the oak for its endurance, the fruit (acorn) for its fertility. Now I'd like to tie all of those things together with my kids, my hubs and our oak tree all together permanently on my body. :)
My last name is Oliveira, wich means “olive tree”. So, I decided to make this to show how important my family is to me. The hearts represent my grandfather and grandmother, and I choose to do it on my Achilles tendon, because, as I always say, my family is my weakness. My tattooer is Marco Teixeira from Curitiba/Brazil.
