This is my fourth tattoo made by my wonderful and best friend.
She is awesome at doing very realistic tattoos and I wanted to have a tattoo without outlines and this typical oldschool tattoo-look. So I'm very, very pleased with the result! The story behind this tattoo:
The text has a special meaning and is an extract from a poem taken from one of my stories. It is a dark story/poem, so I wanted the lily to have a very intense red color. I chose a lily because the story contains a lot of death metaphors and plays with birth and death and never been born.
The text is in German and translated into English it's something like this: "I rip apart, I break and in the end there is nothing left of me."
Of course it's much more beautiful in German language since it has rhyme and a measure, the two verbs begin with the same letter and so on, but you get an idea of what the text is about^^
I hope you like it as much as I do!
