First tattoo, and couldn’t be happier with the results! Taken Right after. This lion is located on my ribs on the left side, by my heart. This tattoos concept was originally a lion to represent my papa-who has a lion heart. My papa is one of the most inspirational people in my life, and raised my dad, my hero. I’ve had this tattoo planned for quite some time, and through the years my family has gone through a lot. I’ve decided my whole family is brave like a lion, and we all have lion hearts! It’s also a cool coincidental fact that our family crest has a lion in it. So basically, this tattoo represents what I hold dearest to me; family.
