Butterfly Tattoos Emerge with Meaning

Do you have a butterfly tattoo?


“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over... ”


Blah blah blah.


Not every caterpillar becomes a butterfly. And not every butterfly has wings in which he can fly.


I’d like to share the following story about the importance of gaining strength through our personal obstacles. What does YOUR butterfly tattoo mean?



The Struggle Makes You

Tattoo Sleeves: Confident Art Required

Tattoo sleeves are more than most tattoos. It is not a small expression or anything that can be easily hidden or covered up. The arms are a major part of the body that is both very visible and active on a daily basis. Half or full sleeves require a tremendous amount of planning and confidence in the art. Tattoo sleeves are serious!


Make it count!


Appointment request with Gothic City Tattoos

What I want is a 1/4 sleeve symbolization for a few things and I'm not an artist so having trouble thinking of how it would all go together. I am a professional so I need it to wrap around my shoulder and down only about short sleeve length so I can hide it.
Here are the things I'd like included (and I get that it's kind of a hodge-podge):
Jacaranda Tree (represents my husband)
3 turtles (progressively smaller) represents a mother, older child, youngest child
2 butterflies - 1 larger than the other (one with an M and the other with a T somewhere in it)
