Alas, with winter setting in, spotting tattoos in public is seasonably challenging. Thank goodness for ink on uncovered extremities, like hands and the occasional foot!
Case in point, earlier this month I met Niki in Penn Station after spotting this dagger on her foot:
She had this, one of her three tattoos, done three or four years ago a couple of years after her father had passed away.
It is a memorial that is based on a necklace her dad wore. When I asked her, after the fact, if she still had the necklace, she said she didn't, but said it was a lot like this one. She added "my dad bought it the Christmas before he passed away and it really showed off his sarcasm and style because he was very much into motorcycles and whatnot".
Wisely, in my opinion, she kept the design, but excised the words on the necklace from the tattoo!
Niki had this done by Marc at Ink Link Tattoos & Piercings in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Thanks to Niki for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
