Time for a tattoo!

So Tams decided she would venture off and get her second tattoo. Her and I both got our first ones together a few summers ago, and she decided it's time for round 2! She asked me if I would design it with an idear she had already in mind.

I drew up this sketch when we were driving for 4 hours to Ottawa for the Animation Fest a few weeks ago... and I went with her this past Sunday to get it done! Our fab friend Glennie is a tattoo artist at New Tribe in downtown Toronto. She did an awesome job!

I am happy with the way the design turned out - which is good since it's gonna be permanently on her body!! I really love the meaning though; for her the sparrows have a lot of meaning, and especially with the addition of the German writing, stemming from her few year stint living in Germany. If you are truly intrigued, you may ask her all you want for a full explanation. :)
