They started off meaningful, but then I began to appreciate tattoos and tattoo culture. I got the Big Dipper because I worked at a summer camp in Iowa and I’m from Texas so I had never seen the Big Dipper before. The rose is for the Rose City, Portland, and it has the girl blooming because it was where I found myself, as cheesy as that sounds. And I got this one because I want to be a beekeeper some day.
