Megan Shares a Floral Sleeve from Edmonton

Back in May, I met Megan in Penn Station. She was visiting New York City from Edmonton, Alberta. Her lovely full sleeve caught my eye:

I mean, it really is spectacular:

With "love" and "faith" inscribed on her wrists, her arm is a bloom with roses, chrysanthemums, calendulas, and a bright sunflower at her shoulder, with a hummingbird fluttering on her back:

The pink flowers below the hummingbird are gladiolas. It's really quite an extraordinary sleeve.

Megan elaborated:
"It's all the birth flowers of the people in my family. The butterfly represents change, the rose represents love, and the hummingbird is for my grandma. The sunflower is for my mom."
She estimates that she has spent about 55 hours under the needle for this sleeve.

Megan credited Jessica Adler at Crimson Empire Tattoo in Edmonton.

Thanks to Megan for sharing her beautiful sleeve with us here on Tattoosday!
