Claire's Tree of Life

I was at the Canal Street subway station waiting for the N train to Brooklyn when I spotted a young woman with this thigh tattoo:

She told me her name was Claire and that she got this Tree of Life tattoo because she has suffered from epilepsy since she was a little girl.

The tree is accompanied by an Irish blessing that serves as a reminder that angels are watching over her. It reads:
"May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more. May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door."
She credited the work to an artist named Jackie at a shop in Staten Island, New York.

Thanks to Claire for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
