Growing up my grandparents were so important to me and I have so many really happy memories that revolve around them and their farm and my tattoos speak of this love.
My grandfather’s tribute tattoo has a magpie skull at its centre representing him. My grandfather has passed away so a skull made sense to me. He loved magpies and would often talk to them. When I hear magpies singing I often think of him.
The vines and flowers surrounding the skull are Morning Glory vines which grew on the front fence of my grandparents’ farm.
Kel Tait, a tattoo artist who was living in Melbourne from the UK did a guest spot in Adelaide specialises in watercolour and I was so excited to have the chance of having her work on my arm.
