My first tattoo. I always loved the meaning behind the ouroboros. I also grew up on a farm in Cooper TX, sometimes would see a copperhead and I was always amazed at their beautiful color. I had my tattoo in the shape of a triquetra celtic knot to simbolize the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. One of my favorite anime charactures is Orochimaru from Naruto and he has the power to summon a giant snake named Manda. This snake has four horn like protrusions on his head. I also wanted the horns to have a certain shape to them. So I based them on my favorite Disney villan, Maleficent.

I wanted this one to have a similar art style as the one I have on my tricep. I wanted most of the contrast to come from the flowers as oppose to the snakes themselves. I love snakes so of course I added another snake tattoo to my arm. It is based on the 13th Zodiac most people dont know about. Ophiuchus the snake charmer. I’m also from TX so I wanted it wraped around a Blue Bonnet which is TX’s state flower.
Added a snake made of flowers to fill in the open space on my arm. I decided to make the background a solid light red. “Cold hands mean a warm heart.” My grandparents would say this to me every time they held my cold skinny hands. They would ask “are you dead?” Then they would follow up with that quote. So I got it tattooed on my chest in their memory. The frame was added on after I got the quote and the artist did an amazing job. I asked him for an ornate frame around the quote and to have the colors based on one of my favorite flowers, the blue bonnet. He then added little touches of baby blue and red to add contrast and make it pop.
