Tattoo Profiles: the Private Stories Behind Raquel’s Tattoos

index

We asked Raquel to tell us about her tattoos and what they mean to us. Here’s what she said.

First water color Stilo Tattoo.

This tattoo was done by Stilo at Stiloink, was his first watercolor tattoo to do and I wanted something of my kids that was different and Stilo came up with the idea of doing the flower of the months my kids were born and I love that idea and when we sat down to look up March and September I love the flowers even more because they’re so different and so are my kids!

Past and Future:

This tattoo is one of my favorite tattoos because it’s my past and my future. A tree can go through so much and still stand and that’s why I picked a tree I asked my friend Stilo from Stiloink to do a tree half dead half alive to show me past and how dark it was and my future to show how bright it’s going to be and he did more than what I was expecting, with the little details of the tree being stitched back together and the skull at the bottom and the butterfly! I love this tattoo!

In honor of Dad Tattoo:

This tattoo is to my dad! I am a bit daddy’s girl and I have on top left the same pray mantis that my dad has in the same spot, and my dad loves orchids so I wanted them falling down my back and my dad always told me growing up “cats & cradle” instead of saying bye and I never understood it till I heard the song and it means a lot to me to have my dad on my back because he as always looked out for me! My friend Stilo from Stiloink did this tattoo and going to do one more session to wrap up all the coloring!

– Thanks for sharing the stories behind your ink, Raquel!
