i got this tattoo two days ago by fiona at absolution tattoo and body piercing in christchurch, new zealand. this is the first sitting of two, the second will be for the colour. it is an illustration from flower fairies by cecily mary barker. the reason it is important to me is because my best friend and i used to dress up as our favourite flower fairies when we were younger. i think it’s cool that i got gorse because it isn’t a typical flower to get tattooed (it’s a weed in new zealand).
