Caduceus tattoo

My freshest tattoo. If you have seen the other tattoos in my gallery, you would have noticed that I get tattoos about things that mean a lot to me and what made/makes me who I am. It seemed a very natural progression that I should get a tattoo that celebrates my parents' contribution.

The female figure and snakes are an adapted caduceus (medicine symbol) representing my mother as a nurse and how that sparked my love of the biological sciences.

The wings and the Chinook (helicopter) are a symbol of my father as a pilot which has always been a huge source of respect for him.

The instigating event that made me decide to get this was my father quitting drinking and smoking (which for a heavy smoker and an alcoholic is a huge step)! Yet another thing they deserve some respect for.

Kudos to ~BluWntrHrizn for a helpful starting concept.

Thank you for that upload (:

Looking for inspiration for my Asclepian tattoo, and the angel of yours is beautifully done.
