Finished off this Angel for Graham today... the little thing underneath it is a locket that contains his mum's ashes. He came me to me a few months ago because he wasn't able to wear the locket at work anymore, so he wanted something he could keep with him at all times. A pleasure and a privilege to do this for you man, thanks for the trust 😊 we made a start on the other side too, but I'll post that in a few weeks when it's finished #tattoos#tattooed#blackandgrey#angel#angeltattoo#memorial#tattooartist#apprentice#wigan#uk#uktattoo#artist
This memorial for Lt. Michael Murphy was broken by vandals, who have now been apprehended. Instead of replacing it, I humbly suggest repairing it with Kintsugi, a 15th century Japanese art used to repair precious pottery using a lacquered resin and powered gold. Not only is it beautiful, but it has a lot of symbolism that would apply to the resiliency of a Navy Seal. Though something might be broken, it doesn't mean that it doesn't have value. We pick up the pieces, put it back together, and each precious scar from the event tells a story of overcoming adversity.
