Her First Tattoo

Lela called me up one day and asked if I thought I might be able to help her with a memorial tattoo for her mom. She was a bit concerned, as she'd never received ink before, but she was ready to commit. She knew she wanted it on her forearm, so that she could see it every day, but wasn't really sure about what imagery to use. After I asked her what kind of things her mom liked, she said, "Well, she did like frogs, but I don't know that I want a frog on me!" She eventually decided that she would like a design featuring the infinity symbol with birds flying up her arm and her mom's date of birth.

She says, "I want to give a positive shout out to Victoria at Floating Lotus Tattoo. Victoria is an amazing artist. She made me feel so comfortable during our tattoo session; it was my first tattoo.

I am extremely amazed how talented Victoria is with her work and I am very content with her beautiful art. If you want an awesome and beautiful tattoo, this is where you would want to go. Please go check out her art-- it's amazing. Thanks again, Victoria-- job well done."
