Dana's Straight Flush Honors Her Dad

Early last week, I ran into Dana outside of the Third Avenue Starbucks in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. She had some cool black and gray work on her calf:

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!
