I got this tattoo almost a year ago by Tom at Hope Street Tattoo in Providence, Rhode Island. My mother has been fighting cancer for almost 9 years and she has a butterfly tattooed on the back of her neck as a symbol of her changes and struggles into who she is today. An elephant has always been my symbol for good luck. I’ve had pictures, statues, key chains, and anything else of elephants just so I could feel better. By combining the two I’ve found some type of harmony and a wonderful tattoo to represent my mother. I haven’t been able to find the original artist who designed the basic outline, but if I could I’d probably thank them for something so beautiful because it means the world to me.
