My new tattoo that I got with my friends in Florence at the tattoo convention there. The deer is in memory of my grandfather who passed away this past year, and I was unable to attend his funeral since I was away (being in the military and all..). But it’s not only dedicated towards my grandfather, who was a man who encouraged me to do so many things… but also to myself. It represents everything that I’ve gone through since I left home. I’ve learned to grow my own “horns” and depend on only myself a lot of the times. That’s why I chose a stag and not a simple doe. Because I’m not really a doe symbolically. I’m in a warrior career field, and work among men. I’m a strong and independent woman. The color red is very powerful at the same time, very elegant, and that’s what I was going for.
