About My Tattoo

My tattoo is in memory of my best friend (more my soul sister) who I had been best friends with for 33 years and she passed away last year of lung cancer at the age of 39.

Why My Tattoo is Healing to Me

I chose the song "If I Die Young" for her service because it was fitting in so many ways. (hence the lyric) and the dove because I was able to hold and launch a dove at her service as well. (I plan on adding a little bit more on the sides of the dove, soon.)

Not only will I never forget her but when I look at my arm, it's as if she is with me. (if that makes sense?)


  • The only advice I have is make sure it is something you really want and research your artists before you get it done.
