I was a little surprised when Gina, one of my dear friends, contacted me for a tattoo. She says, "I always knew I wanted a tattoo, but I didn't know what image I would want so permanently.

After looking at photos of falcons rising through the air, we worked on how much we should include in the tat; Gina knew she wanted a simple outline and came up with the design herself. Now she has a falcon flying across her forearm towards her wrist, to remind her that she's free. Click on the Read more link to see the final photo.
