I met Christine at the Trader Joe's on the Upper West Side yesterday evening and she shared these four tattoos:
Moving clockwise from the upper left in the photo above, we start with an outline of Brooklyn, in honor of the borough in which Christine was born and raised.
At the top of the other forearm is an om symbol, which captures her focus and has occasionally "helped with panic attacks."
The two butterflies on opposite arms were inked in honor of her nieces, who both love these colorful insects. The shade of each represents their favorite colors.
The Brooklyn piece was inked at Asylum Studios in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. The om and the butterflies were done by artists at Three Kings Tattoo. Both shops are in Brooklyn and have had work appear on Tattoosday previously here (Asylum) and here (Three Kings).
Thanks to Christine for sharing these four of her eleven (!) tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
