The Cover Up

I got the obligatory “tramp stamp” tattoo when I was 21 or so. I had ended a three year relationship and it became a badge of freedom for me. It was of a hand drawn butterfly that the artist did for me. It was a done on the spur of the moment. I never regretted the tattoo, but I out grew the tattoo. I changed and grew as a person and it was time to cover the tattoo with something that was more meaningful to me.

I made an appointment with TRAVIS LAKEMAN at FU’S CUSTOM TATTOOS (Charlotte, NC), told him I wanted a lotus flower, and let him do his magic. As always, he did not disappoint.
