my new tattoo!

I have been meaning to get this tattoo for 6 years now. 7 years ago, on Aug 16, 2005 my grandmother passed away. She meant the world to my sisters and I, so we all decided to get a tattoo in her memory - 'Nonna' which means grandmother in Italian. My sisters both got theirs while I was pregnant with Isabella. I waited WAY too long to get mine. The two birds represent Isabella and Simon. I know my grandmother is watching over them. I just wish she could have met them...

Here is my tattoo with a few before/during shots:

the finished tattoo!

the first couple of minutes hurt like a b*tch, then my arm went numb and it was okay after that

  4. Beautiful! My husband's grandparents are Nonno and Nonna and he also has a "family" tattoo for his late Grandad on his arm. I think it's a lovely way to remember someone special :)
