The Butterfly Effect: Susan's Ink

I met Susan at the laundromat a couple weekends back and took pictures of the butterfly tattoos on her right arm:

She loves these colorful insects and, like many people who get butterfly tattoos, appreciate them as symbols of freedom:

Susan has her whole back tattooed (she showed me a bit of her lower back and said she'd think about sending in a photo) and got these tattoos on an impulse, in December 2004. She was living in the Bronx at the time, and when she was unable to get into Manhattan due to the last transit strike, went to a local shop and had the butterflies added to her arm.

Thanks to Susan for sharing these cool tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
