It's been 10 years since I made my last tattoo and since then I wanted to tattoo something big, something that means the world to me. We all know that tattoos last forever and I guess that's the reason why my first tattoo is in the neck and now in the back - I don't get to see it everyday but it's still there with me all the time. If I had a chance to see it every single day I'd probably get sick of it.
I knew my next tattoo would be a tree because symbolizes oxygen, shade, food, LIFE. But which kind of tree? Last year I finally found the answer when I met Redwoods (find my past posts about them here and here), it was love at first sight. They are giant pine trees, the largest and tallest trees in the World (they say), ancient (they can live 2000 years) and only can be found in California and Oregon.
Next step: contact my talented friend Cátia to draw from scratch my new babe. After digital communication she showed me the masterpiece and I couldn't be happier! Cátia is a real artist, she born for this. Her personal+unique style and psychedelic free spirit are admirable. She made research about redwoods, all draw has symbols and meanings: meditation, flame, eyes, tibetian flags, etc. and it's OUR tattoo, will connect us forever. It's not a image you photocopy from the web and you ink it to your body.
Last, need color. I'm still figuring out color shades and what can work. Actually you cannot see the low part of the tree since the dress is hiding. And I decided to do not post details on internet so no one can copy. I wish you could see the details, so pretty!
Are you planning on getting some tattoos soon? What are you gonna get? I have many ideas for next tattoos already. Iam serious! :) You can check my tattoo inspiration on pinterest here.
