I got this tattoo about two months ago. My parents were never too keen on tattoos and neither was I to be honest; I couldn't see myself wanting something enough to get it permanently marked on my body. But when my mom's cancer came back in 2011, I began to consider getting one. My parents said no at first, but when my mom told me that she was terminal last summer, she gave me her blessing. This tattoo serves as a reminder to me that despite her passing, my mom is with me everyday.
