My last name is Oliveira, wich means “olive tree”. So, I decided to make this to show how important my family is to me. The hearts represent my grandfather and grandmother, and I choose to do it on my Achilles tendon, because, as I always say, my family is my weakness. My tattooer is Marco Teixeira from Curitiba/Brazil.
Already have the tree of life ( very similar to this, on my side from my hip to my rib cage), I added Galiec words throughout the bark tho to symbolize the most important things in life to me such as love, loyalty, strength, etc.
Done about two weeks ago. I got this particular tree on my right side; its symbolic of the relationship I have with my mother. We get tangled and shit, but I always want to remember that we’ve helped each other grow and support each other. Happy Mother’s Day, Ma.
