    In 2014, my sister and I traveled to the Philippines to visit my mom’s grave for the first time after she passed away in 2012. We got these matching tattoos based on the short story “A Christmas Memory” by Truman Capote. That’s my mom's signature at the end of the kite string. :)

    This tattoo is in memory of a favorite student of mine who died suddenly. Butterflies were her thing, and at the funeral, her dad talked about how the signs for butterfly and freedom are so similar.
