My first tattoo. I’m 43, fought through a serious illness that nearly killed me, and have been trying to live a fuller life. My daughter had gotten two tats that represented places in the world she loved and I fell in love with that idea. London is the one place in the entire world that has felt like home to me. I moved a lot in the states growing up and never had that feeling anywhere. But when I set foot in London… well, I never felt so happy. So when I decided to get a tattoo, I came up with this design that represents my beloved London. My tattoo artist, Shaun, did a fabulous job with it and I love it.
