my lotus arm piece, still a little flaky ;)
I had a cover up done on an old piece on my arm. Mum hated the old one, which was much smaller (you can still see it peaking through a tiny bit in the bottom section with the waves), so she's going to LOVE this one. I think I'll do the big reveal at Christmas lunch, after a few wines!
this shot was taken the day I had it done, so very bruised and shiny, but I wanted to show the beautiful leaf that blooms up onto my shoulder. I love the shape of it so much.
I've wanted a lotus tattoo for such a long time - a symbol of beauty coming from mud, and every time I look down at my arm it makes me very happy. It reminds me that adversity can produce beautiful rewards, and my reward was so very, very good; my darling Lily-girl :)
