Veronique's new ink appeared in a thread on Darin's social media post, so I reached out and asked if she minded sharing.
You are not seeing double, there are two tattoos. Veronique and her daughter, Miranda, got matching ink, Veronique on her back and her daughter on her hip.
"My daughter Miranda designed it to remind her of home when she goes back to school. Those jasmine flowers are in our yard ... It was the first tattoo for both of us, so it was definitely a mother-daughter bonding experience. And if I’m going to put something permanent on my body, what better than one of my daughter’s designs? And for her, it’s hard for her to be so far away from home all year, so it was her way of staying connected to home and family."The tattoos were done by Justin Brophy (@finkface) at Empire Tattoo in Upland, California.
The flowers, Veronique told me, are "pink jasmine to remind [Miranda] of home." She is studying in Seattle and "designed the tattoo, then Justin brought it to life with the detail color and shading."
Thanks to Veronique and Miranda for sharing their tattoos with us here on Tattoosday's Occidental Week!
