Rib Cage Symbols tattoo
posted by emmalina
This is my first and only tattoo. I got it after my father passed away when i was 17 (i got the tat at 19 though). The broken column represents broken strength (my dad)-- it has no colour; the bird is a swallow and it represents my mother (it has a tear) the two flowers are cinq-foils ("beloved daughters" in Victorian symbolism) and represent my sister and I twining around our dad and growing up. I wanted the flowers to be cartooney and the column and bird to be realistic. What do you think?

the meaning behind this tattoo gives it a whole new life, a sad story told by beautiful art..

I absolutely LOVE this tattoo! It is by far my favorite and I've looked at every one of them on here! My dad died when I was eleven and this is SUCH a good representation of your love for him. I'm a fan. 10+ for sure!

this is a fine peice of art that tells your story i hope your as happy as can be with how it came out and with not knowing what other people have gone through this symbolizes hardship very well
