I like how bold the lines are. It's as close to blackwork as I've seen without crossing into that territory

maybe my next tattoo will be a turtle. Symbol of the Turtle : taking their homes with them wherever they go, turtles remind us to remember our roots while still welcoming new places and phases in life. They teach us to appreciate life's simple, true necessities : shelter, food, drink and most importantly, FAITH . The turtle's slow gait requires the animal to have faith that it will eventually get where it is going and that its needs will be satisfied along the way.
