The tattoo honors her and her father. "He's a huge card guy," she told me. Each card has a symbolic meaning.
She pointed out that the hand is a straight flush, but not a natural one - the ten of hearts sees to that. The King and Jack are karma cards and the Ace represents her father. She said that the Queen of Clubs is a Sagittarius card for her, and is the prettiest card in the deck.
She walked into Brooklyn Made Tattoo and the shop owner Mr. Kaves (a friend of Tattoosday who makes occasional appearances here) took her concept of the card idea and turned it into the final product which she loves.
Thanks to Dana for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
