This is my second tattoo. It is the skull of a T-Rex. I got this tattoo in honor of my younger 16 year old brother, Tony, who has autism. He is three years younger than me and we are very close. Growing up we played with dinosaurs everyday and his favorite was always the tyrannosaurus rex. While I am off away at college he’s been going through a rough time at home since my parents are divorcing, and I’ve been missing him a lot. So I got this tattoo to remind me of the good days, to remind me that things will get better, and to remind me that he’ll always be there for me, as will I for him.
