I wanted to celebrate Mother's Day with something new, but didn't have a lot in the backlog that was specifically motherly.
Then I remembered Meaghan Farrell.
I met Meaghan last month in Penn Station and approached her when I saw her tattoos. Turns out, Meaghan is a singer-songwriter with 15 tattoos, more of which will appear here tomorrow.
One of the tattoos we talked about was this one on her inner right forearm:
Madge Gassaway was Meaghan's grandmother, who passed away when Meaghan was only nine. Madge, she told me, was a "strong, independent woman," who had a huge impact on her life.
The quote, words of wisdom that have significant meaning for Meaghan, was worthy of inscribing them on her flesh.
Of course, right after I left Meaghan I realized, I forgot to take a picture of the quote from her grandmother, and she kindly sent me one she took herself.
In addition, Meaghan also has this stunning rose on her right shoulder:
Meaghan explained that her grandmother had an amazing rose garden, and that this tattoo represents not only the memory of her.
The artist responsible for these tattoos is Mr. Beans, at Fat Cat Tattoos NYC in Astoria, Queens.
Tune in tomorrow for two more of Meaghan's tattoos. I wanted to share these today in honor of mothers and grandmothers everywhere, who have such a great impact on all of our lives.
Thanks to Meaghan for sharing her tattoos with us here at Tattoosday! Happy Mother's Day to All!
