Ok, so for those of you who have asked me......the below picture is my newest tatto, and despite what some may think it has VERY special meaning to me. A good friend of mine has poked some fun at this tattoo and the words "You need help for your Depp addiction" have come up. The other thing is that the bird in the tatto is NOT a dove...it is a sparrow....that bears some resembalnce to a dove hee hee. Here are my reasons behind the tattoo:
1.) My grandad was a navy man during world war II. He was stationed on a ship off the coast of England. Sparrows, and swallows are one of the symbols for the "sea", and I love the bird. I love my grandad very much, and he has had some hard times latley, and has undergone a lot of surgery. I wanted to remember all the wonderful things he has done for me over the years, and what better way to do it then a permanent tribute.
2.) Yes, the tattoo has a reference to Johnny Depp, but not in the way that many people think. It is a tribute to the infamous Jack Sparrow. I love the character so much, and even at one point thought about putting a full size Jack Sparrow on my back. But I didn't. Johnny Depp has brought so many characters to life, and he has brightened the lives of so many with his latest persona Jack Sparrow. I love everything pirates, and Johnny has a way of bringing out the best in me. So that is reference #2 to the tattoo.
So here it is...one hour after being tattooed! It's still a bit red and swollen, but it is on the mend!
