This is a memorial tattoo for my cousin Eddie who committed suicide in november of '08. His favorite band was the Grateful Dead, and he was a Chef. <3
I added a twist of hippie designs on the inside to represent him and I both. My absolutely favorite tattoo by far. This is located on my right shoulder.
Done by Jay Baxer at Masquerade Tattoo in Ridge, NY.
[I'm curious as to how my tat has a 9.9 vote but isn't on the top 10 :( ]
what a lovely idea and sentiment for your cousin, Heather. i, too, was touched by suicide, unfortunately. it's a nice way to remember Eddie. you're a wonderful person with a beautiful tattoo. the details are amazing. i love the flowers inside. :0)
Thank you :) I absolutely love it. [didn't know a person could be in love with their own shoulder blade lol]
It's amazing though...this photo gives the tattoo no justice! The colors are so bright, and detail so perfect. Couldn't ask for a better artist :)
