Picasso's Head, 1946 accompanied by "Give it a try." I got this tattoo to commemorate my acceptance into design school and to remind me to keep following my dreams. Picasso is my favorite artist because he learned all the rules in order to break them. The quote is in my dad's handwriting - he has been my biggest supporter in following my passion for interior design.
It’s the first day of class. They shuffle in, spot similar life-forms, and slip in with that group. Hipsters sporting wild hair and tats, buttoned-up and serious young scholars, middle-aged moms and dads, maybe a couple of aging hippies. One or two sad souls choose spots isolated from the others; they don’t want to identify with them for reasons of insecurity, arrogance, or something else.
Mind is made up!! I'm getting a pelican tat but with more tribal/paisley design. Pelican represents the passion of Jesus and the Eucharist and in Christian symbolism- caring and self-sacrificing parent. Saint Thomas quotes, in describing Christ, "loving divine pelican, able to provide nourishment from his breast." Not to mention it's the national bird of Romania, in which I have some root! Lastly it's the sign of Irish Blood Transfusion..I'm Irish too! BAM. DONE DEAL!
