Description

I designed this tattoo and this is a picture of it freshly inked on Aug. 20, 2007.

I designed this tattoo one night when my brother was very ill. He recently passed away of cancer and I got this tattoo because I drew it with only him on my mind. He had a big heart and showed me the meaning of true love alongside his lovely fiance, Beth. Worked into the heart design is the chinese symbol for 'strength.' Shawn was an extremely strong person. He fought cancer for a grueling two years and in the end, I do believe that he won the battle. I also designed the tattoo to resemble a tribal form because Shawn had a tattoo of his own of the tribal type.

I'm very proud of this design and happy with the tattoo.

Love and Miss you Shawn, my big brother. You will forever remain in my heart <3
