This is a Lithuanian Vytis on the back of my neck, it is the equivalent of what the Bald Eagle is to America. It is their symbol of freedom and statehood. My dad is 100% Lithuanian, much of my family is from there/came over here from there, and I am half. Done by Shawn at New Age Tattoo in Marquette, MI.
Lindsay, I see so much mindless trash on this site, that it's refreshing to see some thoughtful consideration to what will be a perminant fixture on your body. Both tattoos are well very done and it's nice to have these touchstones!
