Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday Week 11

Welcome to week 11 of Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. Since I've went through all my tattoos, now I'll be sharing photos I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in.

I saw this tattoo on the internet some where about a month ago and I fell in love with it. I'm a big person on butterflies and beautiful pieces of art on people like this scene as a half sleeve. 

The butterfly at the top takes my breath away because it has a 3D look to it that I've been seeing more and more lately. I'm probably just slow to the game, but it seems new to me and when done right.... it's AMAZING. 

I've always tried to keep my tattoos where they can be hidden if needed, but at the same time, I've always wanted a half sleeve similar to this. I'd want to use the flowers from each month my children were born and create a beautiful boquet almost on my arm. Maybe have butterflies around, and other outdoor things to fill in gaps, but I figure if I'm going to put something on my arm where it can't be hidden much, I might as well get something that will be timeless. Another key factor is making sure someone does it that truly knows what they're doing and that someone will be Nick who I've mentioned before!
