My last tattoo it means “Thin Red Line” is a symbol used by fire departments to show respect for firefighters injured and killed in the line of duty. As firefighters are periled, they place their lives second to those they protect. They are forced to face their own fears and grasp for every ounce of courage to perform the necessary task. “The Thin Red Line of Courage” represents the last ounce of courage firefighters find deep in their blood to conquer their darkest fears in order to save and protect life and property.

Salmon are considered “ANADROMOUS” which means they live in both fresh and salt water. Very few other fish can survive in such wide ranges of salinity, and would die if they moved between salt and fresh water the way that salmon do. .

If a keystone species were to disappear, their ecosystems would change significantly. . THEY TRAVEL GREAT DISTANCE to get back to they river they where born.

This dude right here was born with his liver being on the opposite side of his body and it only being 20% of the size it should be. His mother was a match and donated part of her liver to him to save his life. The colors represent their birthstones and bond in life through this surgery.

In memory of #flowersofmanchester and the passengers who lost their lives or survived and had their lives forever changed by the #munichairdisaster on the 6th February 1958. Done by: @yleniaattard #blackandgreytattoo #manchesterunited #realistictattoo #airplane “Your children are not your children. They are sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for thir souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the make upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness. For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He also loves the bow that is stable.” – Gibran Khalil Gibran Thank you Ben for your trust and for the complete freedom with your idea! Ben’s
