I see tattoos as memory stamps. I got my first Love floral tattoo Skull shirt, it’s a small Pisces sign on my right ankle. My friend, Hope, paid for it. For a few years that followed, I’d get a random one each birthday – a daisy on my back, a tribal daisy flag to permanently mark the early 2000’s. There’s one to honor my sister.

One to honor the passage of a rough time, one for my best Love floral tattoo Skull shirt. When my son was born, I spent my last day of maternity leave getting the words “be here now” on one wrist and the constellation for my husband on my inner arm- both to ground me.

A while after that, my son’s constellation was added to the same arm. I started daydreaming of a hummingbird- the animal I most identify with in honor of feeling both multi-passionate and hyper-focused. I saw that hummingbird somehow integrated with the floral paintings my Love floral tattoo Skull shirt.
