Memorial Tattoo for my Grandma

.
My grandma passed away on April 28, 2016. The day after we laid her to rest; May 3, 2016 I went and got this memorial tattoo done on my right forearm in memory of her. Everything in the tattoo including the placement has meaning.

My grandma was an excellent right handed bowler. That is the reason this is on my right forearm and is a bowling pin.

My grandma owned and loved Parakeets, that's why there is a blue parakeet inside the bowling pin.

My grandma's favorite colors were blue and purple. that is why you see those two colors in this tattoo.

These first photos were taken the day of getting tattooed. The color splash is from a few days after getting tattooed. I miss my grandma so much.

LiaF7 Only one year dear... still hurts so much. Only started hurting less 5 years after mine died. Still hurts but it isn't on my mind daily and that makes it less painful. Only time will help you dear, only time.
Beautiful tattoo.
