My husband and I lost our baby girl in May 2014 at 22 weeks 6 days gestation, and as part of the grief process we decided we needed to get tattoos to commemorate her. I was set on wanting a watercolor tattoo, and began my insane research to find someone amazing who also didn’t have a year-long waiting list, difficult as I am very picky. Luckily I found Britta Christiansen from Living Art Gallery Tattoo in San Clemente, CA. She is phenomenal! These are our tattoos right after getting them done. Mine is on the left, his is on the right. He will be getting some black splatters like I have and the color a bit darker at the touch up appointment, but otherwise, they are perfect.

It is terrifying to think that one day you will trust somebody enough to let them see you naked. You will undress and remind them that you’ve stretch marks and birth marks and scars from having chicken pox when you were little and scars from all of the other things now. You will blush thousands of shades of red, painting yourself as a rose losing its petals. And that person - that person will take it all in. And I wonder if they will reassure you. But mostly, I wonder if they will even see anything worth reassuring you about. I hope they see each freckle on your back as if it’s a star and you are the whole universe to them.
