My mom and her love of elephants is always with me.

~For my momimage.

I got this tattoo for my mom. She loved elephants and collected them in knickknacks. My mom and I were like best friends and when she past away on my 34th birthday, I just broke down and cried. I knew that one day I would get a elephant tattooed on me for her. Every time I look down and see my elephant I think of my mom and I know she would have loved this tattoo if she had gotten to see it. I have it on my leg on the outside of my left calf. It makes me feel like I have something on me that was my mom’s; her love of elephants.

All forty of my tattoos tell a story. I am like a walking book of my life!
