My tattoo by KristyMichelle My tattoo by KristyMichelle
My tattoo, all finished

Meaning behind it

Well, the tree represents life, me getting older ect.
The birds, represent my daughter & more children to come I hope.
The wording says "the worst thing is holding on to someone who doesn't want to be held on to"
Which is a reminder to myself to let go of the past, a certain person & move on in life. :)

I like the tree and the birds, but the letters are a stark contrast in skill for me. Is this a reproduction of your own hand writing? Otherwise I would have expected something more uniform in style from a professional drawer/tatto artist.

Please don't take this as critique on the motive (It's a really meaningful choice) or the artfulness (is this even a word?). And in NO way should this be a critique on your choice of tattoo or tattoo artist!
All the best to you & and your little birds! :-)

Because it was the largest spot on my body for me to get it the size I wanted, on another note - what's it to you where I or anyone else for that matter chooses to get a tattoo?
Ps, I have one on my bum, I can't see that one either
