This back/side piece tattoo idea is a flock of birds on a tree branch/limb, but it's more like a black/grey/gray "ink wash" effect to me. Mellowed tones and realism. Takes the enormity out of the scale and softens it a bit.-BirdY
Tattoo is based off of the idea of the red string of fate, an Asian belief that two people are connected by a red string (tied together by the gods) and theyare destined to develop a great friendship, fall in love, or help each other in some way. Its a reminder that relationships with people are going to continuously change, fall apart, evolve, and improve, and thats okay - we are connected, nevertheless. // Plus, I think its pretty darn cute.
