Throughout my childhood my grandfather and I were very close. He’d pick me up from school, do my homework with me, and bring me to whatever activity I had going on. As we both got older the caretaker role switched and I would take him to doctors appointments, grocery shopping, lunch etc. When he passed away in 2009 I wanted to get a tattoo in his memory. I went to the tattoo parlor not really knowing exactly what I wanted. I came up with this tattoo based on combining pieces of a few different examples that were displayed at the tattoo shop. The angel wings and halo to signify that my grandfather is my guardian angel and a cross in the middle for in loving memory. This is still my only tattoo to date, but maybe #2 will come soon!
