Jeniffer's Birthday Tattoo, Honoring Babba

I spotted Jeniffer on the steps outside of Madison Square Garden on the last day in May and couldn't resist asking her about this tattoo:


Jeniffer, who is from Sydney, Australia, was visiting New York in April 2011 and had this Matroyshka doll (more commonly referred to as a Russian nesting doll) done in honor of her twenty-first birthday. It was a gift from her sister, who got the same tattoo.

The tattoo was done by Sarah Schor in Brooklyn.

Jeniffer elaborated on the origin of the tattoo:
"There's three of us [sisters]. I'm the youngest. The sister who got it is the oldest and ...we went to get something together and we were trying to come up with something that came in threes ... three amigos, three musketeers, little pigs, and then we just, we've ... got European background, so we thought babushkas ... Babba is what we call my grandmother ... and all three of us have always been close to her ... sort of a triple whammy ... we meant to actually get differing sizes, but we couldn't convince the middle sister to get it, so, we ended up just getting the same."
Thanks to Jeniffer for sharing this lovely tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
