Wow :] Amazing. I'm looking for a nice swallow design for a tattoo in memory of my dad. I love the quote too. Beautiful.

that's a beautiful tattoo, and inked for a more beautiful reason. i love people that get tattoos with personal story behind them.

oh thank you. you're so sweet ^_^
i really like your gallery too.
p.s. you're my hero because of the koi fish you draw! i :heart: japanese designs!

it's really funny that you mentioned being a tattoo artist, because i'm gonna be one too. i found a place to apprentice me (or more so they found me). i'm just waiting til they clear me a spot.
