Done by the talented Alex Strangler at The Dolorosa Tattoo Company. I got this close to a year ago, but got it touched up last month, this is it completely healed.

My husband and I lost our baby girl in May 2014 at 22 weeks 6 days gestation, and as part of the grief process we decided we needed to get tattoos to commemorate her. I was set on wanting a watercolor tattoo, and began my insane research to find someone amazing who also didn’t have a year-long waiting list, difficult as I am very picky. Luckily I found Britta Christiansen from Living Art Gallery Tattoo in San Clemente, CA. She is phenomenal! These are our tattoos right after getting them done. Mine is on the left, his is on the right. He will be getting some black splatters like I have and the color a bit darker at the touch up appointment, but otherwise, they are perfect.
