Kristen's Ink Honors a Generational Vocation
At the end of last summer, we saw a traditional-style tattoo from Kristen (here).
Since then, our paths have crossed several times in the neighborhood. Last weekend, I once again had the good fortune to be doing laundry at the same time Kristen was, and I asked if she'd share the piece above, which is dedicated to her mother.
Kristen explained that her grandmother and mother were both nurses, and she, too, is in the same profession. It's a tribute not only to her mother, but a symbol honoring three generations of dedicated women.
She explained that this, too, was inked by an artist named Twace who works in Brooklyn. You can see some of his work on the site for the Brooklyn shop Citizen Ink.
Thanks again to Kristen for sharing her ink with us here on Tattoosday.
