What's the story behind this tattoo / piercing? The Stl was my first tattoo, have to represent Home. The angel hugging the tombstone is for my friend that was murdered in a carjacking about 11yrs ago. The 2 black doves represent two of my favorite ladies in my life(my grandmother and aunt that passed within 3mos apart from eachother last year. Mother Mary and the Sacred Heart are symbols I've grown up around my entire life. But Mother Mary I got cuz my mom stole a Virgin Mary statue from this elderly womans yard and left a note saying "Mary Will Return" because the statue was really run down,missing paint, and looked really bad. She took it home and had my dad put a brand new paint job on it to bring it back to life. The woman was soo grateful that she called the Suburban Journal and they did an article on it. I just thought that that was pretty cool and thoughtful, something the world needs more of.
