I just got this tattoo today, May 30th. Alex Werder at Star Tattoo in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I’ve always had a strong connection with blue jay birds, and have recently gotten over my fear of birds. The birds breaking off of the side represent breaking away from the bigger part of life and starting your own path, away from the past. It took about an hour to complete. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and I recommend Alex and all his fellow artists down at Star Tattoo next time you’re in Albuquerque!
