Tree of life - tatoo by lorestra Tree of life - tatoo by lorestra
Here is a tatoo I designed for my aunt, with the final result :)

I didnt do the "tatooing" part myself, she went to see a professional for that :P

The main branch represents her life, and the 2 smaller ones with the flowers are for her 2 kids.

The number at the bottom is her thanatology number

the 2 fallen leaves are for my grand-father (her dad) who died recently and one of her best friend who commited scuicide the same year.

this design is (c) ME

Ben un Tanatologue, c'est quelqu'un ki s'occupe des morts, pis chaques tanatologue recoivent un numero quand y finissent leurs etudes, un peu comme une attestation si tu veut. Pis ma tante a decider d'en faire un clin d'oeil au tanatologue qui va l'embeaumé éventuellement :P

Have to agree with the other commenter. One of the most tasteful tattoo designs I've seen in a long time, and I love how it has a lot of personal meaning, but at the same time manages to incorporate that in a naturally flowing way.
