2013 -- week 7 -- best valentine's day present ever + week 6 of #52lists2013



when i was a freshman in college i decided to turn a doodle of mine into a tattoo. it was a simple six petal rainbow flower. as i got older, i realized that it was too symmetrical and i wanted something more. so i tattooed a bunch of five petal flowers up my side. it took me two tries to get it just the way i wanted it. but it's time to add to it again. 

this time i'm thinking of adding a skull to the vines of flowers. i've done a lot of research and looked at a lot of different ideas with the main inspiration being a sugar skull from day of the dead. the above sketch is what i came up with. what do you think? tattoo worthy?
