I knew my next tattoo I wanted was in honor of my grandparents. I pieced together what little I had left of my grandmother’s writing and decided to get this tattoo. If you ever had the chance of meeting my grandpa he always said “how sweet it is”. In the second video there’s an audio clip from one of his voicemails saying “how sweet it is”. Just a simple reminder of how blessed we are to be living life. Throughout it all I always went back to the voicemails he left me whenever I needed to hear his voice. My grandparents didn’t have much but I never truly grasped how much they struggled until much later after their passing and really when I began to start my life as an adult. They were my parents they taught me how to cook, ride a bike, and instilled me with so much wisdom. I was always wrapped in so much love by them. When I was born four months premature weighing only one pound and eleven ounces my grandma sacrificed everything to nurse me to health and make sure I had a good life. She even went to the board of education so I can start school and wouldn’t have to wait a year later because she knew I was capable of being anything I wanted to be. I had a lot of hobbies growing up. From violin, cheerleading, dance, horseback riding, volleyball she was always there taking me to every practice or game even if I quit she was my biggest supporter. I’m so grateful to have two wonderful, loving angels guiding me through life. I’m so grateful for @jonboytattoo creating this piece of art for me. It means so much to me I can’t even put it into words really. Whenever I’m having a bad day I can look down at my arm and be reminded of their love, their strength, their union, and just how sweet life is. ????????????????????????????
