Rochelle (New Zealand) “The constellation of my zodiac sign (Aries) on my left shoulder constructed from cherry blossom branches symbolises my existence and spirit in all it’s realism and totality. The quote ‘The phoenix must burn to emerge’ is from Janet Fitch’s novel White Oleander and alludes to personal issues of mine.”
Laura (Copenhagen) “This is my first tattoo. I’ve had the idea for it for a long time and I finally got it. It represents my two sisters and I, therefore it means a lot to me!”
Andrea (Netherlands) “Fortitude, because it took me very long to accept myself & who I am. It means you stay true to your own principals”

Kelly (Dunkirk) “Ta me caillte gan tu means I’m lost without you in Irish Gaelic. I’m half Irish, and I really wanted to express how much of an impact my brother has made on my life. I also wanted a tribute to my grandfather whose death was really hard for me to get over.”
Laíse S (Salvador, Bahia, Brazil) “Ohana quer dizer familia e familia quer dizer nunca abadonar ou esquecer.”
