My Dragonflies, Krista





My Dragonflies.

Tattoo design.

about the piece.
Dragonflies have always been my favorite bug and since my losses I have discovered that many women are drawn to them after loss. I put this tattoo together using clipart I found online and a downloadable font. The tattoo artist was able to give me exactly what I wanted and even did it cheaper than he quoted it for. Now I have a permanent, physical, outward mark to tell the world that my babies DID exist and that feels right. It was also the only painful tattoo I've ever gotten and that feels right too. - Krista
