Done by Chris Lurie at Lasting Empressions in Daleville, Alabama. (Outline only.) This is my best friend/love of my life Samuel, ex-drug addict. After almost losing his life to his drug of choice, he is now sober, in recovery, and enlisted in the Navy. I got him this tattoo as a ‘going away’ present for when he gets shipped off. I couldn’t be prouder of him. He saved both our lives, for that I’m forever grateful.
The image represents the biggest terror a sailor can face in old folk tails, the text is lyrics from Wooden Heart by Listener.
‘Don’t let these waves wash away your hopes.’
Don’t ever give up, don’t ever back down, even when things get tough and terrifying. Fight to the very end.
