I got this tattoo done by Justin P at Dreamline Ink in NJ.
It's a nautical tattoo, and since I grew up by the water it fits me well. My family owned a marina, which my dad ran most of the time. There were many mud swallows there, and I even used to see him feed the baby ones in their nests. This tattoo is for my father as he passed away in a horrible explosion that occurred there. I was still in high school. The cherry blossoms symbolize the transience of life and how easily things can change.
