I’ve wanted an elephant tattoo for over a decade, but I kept changing my mind on style. Once I saw a watercolor tattoo, I knew I wanted to incorporate that look into this one.

I'm a graphic and web designer. My job is a big part of who I am. It helps me feels good about myself and feel comfortable in my own skin. My tattoo is the Apple logo under word “design” in Russian.

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.

My tattoo is of the Kansas City skyline, and I got this just before a recent move across the country. These are the buildings that always remind me of home.
