Vicki's Shamrock Tattoo
Earlier this month, I posted this tattoo which was a tribute to Olivia Rose, a new daughter born to Vicki. I mentioned in the post that it was Vicki's tattoo below her neck which first grabbed my attention, but that Vicki offered up her newer piece for us here at Tattoosday.
Vicki has recently sent me a photo of the original tattoo I saw on her. It's a nice, simple shamrock and hearts.
This, like the other piece, was inked at True Blue Tattoo in Queens. Alex McWatt is the artist.
Vicki writes: "I got the design for a few reasons. First of all, I am Irish and I wanted to get something to celebrate my heritage without getting a flag tattoo. Second, my boyfriend, the love of my life, is 100% Irish, and I wanted to get a tattoo to symbolism me and him - that is what the two hearts are for. I chose to get it on the back of my neck so it would be out there for the world to see."
Thanks again to Vicki for sharing her ink here with us on Tattoosday!
