Here is my "mermaid on an anchor". It's on my left side all up my ribs. I got it as sort of a "family emblem" representing my family's affinity for the ocean. My last name is Pearl and my birth certificate reads "In Addition to Our String of Pearls...". Also, we had a sailboat called "String of Pearls".
Took 4 1/2 hours all in one sitting.
