Not sure how I feel about the branches of the tree.If they mirrored the roots in style and spread up the hand, rather than being all clumped up in the palm, I'd be in love with this tattoo. Love the idea/placement!
Its a black bird, branching off into a tree. I chose this piece because it represents the death. Black birds represents death and mourning. therefore the bird flying away is a new life being born; hence the tree which symbolizes a new life.
