Last night I finally got my survivor tattoo!
During Lady Gaga's performance at 2016 Oscars 50 sexual assault survivors stood with her onstage in a demonstration to bring awareness to campus rape and sexual assault. They all made a pact to get the same tattoo as a sign of strength and unity. Since then other survivors have gone on to get the same design.
The designer Jacqueline T Lin explains the inspiration for the design on her website: "The tattoo was made for and dedicated to survivors. It is a unity symbol inspired by the loops of our DNA structure and our universal infinity sign. It combines inspiration from Lady Gaga's favorite flower, the white rose, to breathe life into an organic and growing symbol. The final image embraces a fiery shape to give us power and strength everywhere we go." I'm beyond happy with the the way the tattoo turned out. @charliefoos72 did such an amazing job! I can't wait to get my phoenix in a couple weeks!
Crispy lines, smooth shading, and solid saturation. What makes a good traditional tattoo. This is probably my cleanest tattoo I’ve ever done and my personal favorite! Anyone that wants some badass traditional tattoos let me know! Thanks again!
