I have been to Big Brain for all 4 of my tattoos and several piercings, starting with my belly button. At First, even though my mom has a few, my parents weren’t too thrill with the idea of me getting a tattoo. That was until I was 17 and my mom took me to get my first tattoo.

I decided on Big Brain because my sister got gerber daisies tattooed by josh and I thought hers were amazing. I decided after seeing my sisters flowers, he would be perfect for mine, I found images online of another girl with a similar tattoo on her back.

I took it to Josh and he drew mine by hand on my ribs.

I am really fond of cherry blossoms, it’s my favorite flower and hold a special meaning in my life. My great grandma and I would find cherry blossoms while spending time together and would pick a few to make bouquets. My great grandma always made sure that our memories together were ours alone.


Our memory was a cherry blossom.

After she passed I decided getting a tattoo would be a way for me to always remember my time with her.

Cherry blossoms are so beautiful and free. That’s how I look at life now.

I think the people at Big Brain are great people, they took the time to get to know me. When I was nervous they spent the time to calm me down and help me relax. Get an idea and let them help.

Be optimistic and always look for the good things in life.
