I got this gnome tattoo in June to honor my grandma. I spent a lot of time at her house as a young child. She collected gnomes, hedgehogs and Norwegian art… and her house was full of interesting things. I remember trying to keep count of all the gnomes she had… she even had gnome wall paper in her bathroom! I lost my grandma when I was in 4th grade, and I took it really hard. She has been the only person who has died that I was super close to.
This is a fun, yet meaningful tattoo. Every time I look at it I think of her and how she lived life to the fullest.
As she used to say… “Just do it!”
