flowers // Not just flowers; cherry blossoms. They bloom for only 3 days, and all of Japan parties to celebrate that life if short but beautiful. That's why I have these tatoo'd on me.
I will say that this is almost certainly not a tattoo, or it is at least only a black tattoo with the other colors painted/edited on as tattooing white/light pink spots over black is not going to go well. That said, I love how the blossoms cascade across the back in the last panel.

Fran Bailey cat tattoos - those are the faces of her five now deceased cats. They were all extremely ill and she adopted them so they would have some place to live out their last days in comfort. I think if you click on the pic it will take you to the story at Pawnation.com
