My dad died when i was 9, this year it makes ten years that he’s been gone. He was always the most important person in my life. So as a fathers day gift to him i got “i love you” in his handwriting from a letter he wrote me when i was younger. This tattoo is the best tattoo i’ve gotten so far. Done at Jimmy’z Ink Jacksonville Florida, by Jimmy Thiel.
I got this tattoo in january/febuary 2012. I had a vision from bahamas, of this beautiful green sea turtle swimming among the coral. I went to my favorite tattoo artist who worked with me on where to put the tattoo, and drew it out fully custom for me. The sweetest and most patient guy ever! After two sittings I have the finished product healed! Thank you Jimmy, you rock!, Jimmy Riggs, Riggs Full Custom Tattoo. Jacksonville Florida.

It’s my tattoo dedicated to my love for traveling that wouldn’t be possible without my family who dared me to dream big. The initials in the compass stand for the last names of my parents and their parents.
