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
My grandfather had an anchor tattoo on the web of skin between his thumb and forefinger. I've always wanted one too. His had the rope around the anchor, but it had the same simplicity of the ring finger style as seen here. Love this idea for a couple! ♥
In my opinion, everyone is a photographer. Everyone views the world and shows it in their own ways. Photographers just capture the beauty and express it more than others. Photographers have cameras, but everyone else has eyes. I love cameras, mainly old timey ones, and photography, so I want this.
