My Tattoo by FreshwaterMermaid My Tattoo by FreshwaterMermaid
I had been wanting this tattoo for about three years, It's been in my head for so long I'm ecstatic to get it in my skin!

It's to remember my mother and how she always supported my mermaid obsession, and now I am a mermaid ^_^

I drew up MANY different styles and designs and finally settled on one. :) It came out just like I drew it only better! XD

April 10th 2010; I got it done at Studio X in Vancouver, WA By Daniel.
It took only 2hrs, I might go back for more, but I'll need money first lol

Sorry if the the pic is a little blurry, I'll have better shots up as soon as I can ^_^
Thanks for all the comments! Love ya'll! :hug:

I'd love to do that in my koi scales, but i'm to chicken of needles and bit heavy set so i will stick to sharpies or henna haha.

That would be cool to do a koi mermaid scale tat!
lol I'm terrified of needles too, can't stand the doctors! But the tattoo needle was so different to me that I was TOTALLY fine with it! Amazingly! lol
Thanks! I do love this tat, I'll probably be getting more done, hopefully soon... just gotta save up $$$! ^_^

So you drew this yourself? I am head over heels with your tattoo!! I love that some scales are finished and some are not. And the color turquoise is stunning. Would you mind if I used this as inspiration for my next tattoo?

I drew it up many times before I got it tattooed. I just love it, and still find myself staring at it ^_^

I forgot to ask... is it just the one side, or do you have a matching set of scales on your right side?

I also love how some are not finished, as if your skin is "changing" into them!
