I've had it since 1991, thus it's pretty ragged. I got it at the little shop in Balboa Beach. I have a strong attachment to her, but I also recognize it's now practically indistinguishable. I would like to find someone who could create a design that incorporates her and adds some more flowers and maybe even incorporates my daughter's name, Isabela. I would love to add a butterfly somehow too. I don't mind being "realistic," but I also really appreciate the Aztec style of creating birds and butterflies. I wouldn't want it to go much further up the leg, but I'd be game for it to go down and even over onto the top of the foot. (Ouch.)
I'd love to see your ideas. Otherwise, I'll be stuck with the . . . "Is that a turtle?" tattoo.
