swallow, tattoo by sarakennedy swallow, tattoo by sarakennedy
my second tattoo. heeeealed :)

memorial swallow tattoo, for my daddy :heart:

>> ancient eygptians believed the swallow to be the bird that carried souls up to heaven from earth after someone passed away. in the 'old kingdom' they were associated with stars and therefore souls of the dead.

placed it on my left side, close to my heart <3

done at anchors in burlington by jeff. march of '09.

..excuse the odd angle, where the wing disappears over my collar bone. it's hard to take a picture of that area by yourself, without a tripod, using a heavy dslr :P haha

it wasn't too painful. less than the tattoo i have on my hip, which is also over bone. very tolerable pain level.

okey, I will seek it. the musical motive of the tattoo pleases to me too. music notes or the treble clef:)

was that specific spot you got it tattooed on really painful? i would think it would be since your shoulder area is generally a boney spot.

it brusied a lot on the collar bone, but it was very tollerable. i have another on my hip, and it was about the same pain. this one took longer tho :P
not bad at all.
