I got this tattoo Dec, 12, 2011 in Miami, FL by Dharma Tattoos My artist was Loco. This is my first tattoo but not my last, the meaning behind it is the passing of my grandma. She passed away about two months ago and this tattoo is my way of having her memory with me all the time. I got it behind my heart because she was a huge part of my life. The reason I got a love bird is because my fondest memory of my childhood with her was this huge walk in bird cage she had just filled with all kinds of love birds but these were her favorite. She was also a big fan of flowers which is why I got the stem of orchids. Being that it was my first tattoo it was painful but not as painful as I had imagined. My tattoo artist was great and very supportive through out the whole process and as you can see he is very talented. I am more than happy with the results, I will now carry the memory of my grandma with me every where I go.
