My mom is so strong and beautiful. Of course she's such a huge part of helping me become the woman I am today. And now I look at my daughter and can't help but burst with pride as I see that quiet, assured strength blossoming in her. I am a lucky, lucky girl to have such an amazing heritage and tribe of women!
I have been dubbed a "tough cream puff" by my dad since I was a little girl. For me this tattoo represents the contradiction --a tattoo is sort of bad ass after all.
And (plug your ears mom) - I have to admit that I now get why someone would get more than one tattoo.
Although....nothing comes to mind.... just yet!
