This tattoo is still a working progress but it means the world to me.
The 3 mother roses represent 3 important members of my family, 2 which have died. The biggest rose being a symbol of my grandmother who devoted her time and love to me, and still continues to inspire me beyond belief. I chose the mother roses as the symbol as they were her favorite flower.
The branch and newly sprouting branches represents the continuation of life and new happenings. The world continues to turn no matter what happens in our lives and the Owl, is a signature of wisdom, mystery, transition and protection.
The main meaning being to use time wisely, to always keep a look out, be strong and to fight for what you want in life.
The words read ’ I hope to learn, as time goes by, that i should trust what’s deep inside’
As much as they are lyrics from a Dallas Green song ‘Sensible Heart’
They pull together the image/theme i’m trying to portray in the tattoo.
My tattoo artist Graham, works from a studio based in Glasgow, Scotland. And i would strongly recommend him to ANYONE, wither you’re a first timer or a person who likes new work by new artists.
I hope you like :)
