Looking up at Emily Dickinson's bedroom window.
My first and only tattoo, done by Shauncey at Ocala Tattoo in Florida. I submitted this a while ago, but I don’t think it was ever posted. Basically, the tattoo was designed to illustrate the Emily Dickinson poem Hope is the Thing with Feathers, with espere (missing an accent mark) meaning “hope” in French. The birds were taken from my favorite book, The Little Prince, and the heart is just an extra touch, inspired by Rachel on Friends.
Several quotes including Emily Dickinson, Alfred (Lord) Tennyson, Jack Kerouac, Carl Sagan, covering topics such as love, science, education, imagination, strength, and passionate people. Tattoo was done by Ivy Gowen at Metamorphosis in Winnipeg, MB (Canada). Fonts used are Travelling Typewriter and Veteran Typewriter with the artist's own ink splatterings added :)
