Why a tattoo?
There are many reasons why someone gets a tattoo on his or her body.
This can be as a tribute to a dear person or as a reminder to someone who has gone.
Maybe because an important chapter of life was closed, as a sign of a new beginning.
Sometimes it’s just about the aesthetic, out of love for art. Tattoos from artists who are known for their artistic work.
One thing is clear, it’s something personal, everybody has his own reason.

to be filled with the ink of our hearts”
