Bryan was around the corner from where I work with this rose on display:
Perched on his left elbow, the tattoo is identical to one that a friend of his had.
When his friend died, Bryan chose to commemorate his friend's memory by going to the artist that did the original tattoo on his friend, and asked for the same drawing be used to recreate the tattoo on himself.
The artist was Agent at Screamin' Ink Tattoo in New Jersey.
Thanks to Bryan for sharing this memorable tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
