I was leaving my office on Broad Street earlier this week when I spotted a woman with a lot of work on her arm, waiting outside.
I stopped and introduced myself and she agreed to share some of her work.
Yeny is actually in the process of getting a whole sleeve done, so she shared just one section:
Yeny told me her artist is Roberto Martinez (TheBeardedGentNYC on Instagram) and he is doing a cool Gemini tattoo on her forearm, but this rose and clock are a section of the sleeve that is a memorial to a baby she lost.
At the time, she wanted a black rose, but Martinez convinced her to add color, so that it represented a little bit of life. The clock marks the time when she lost the baby.
Thanks to Yeny for sharing her poignant and beautiful tattoo!
