Tattoo Artist … Dragonfly in Memory of Tommy

Tattoo Artist … Perfect Dragonfly … are now Decided On

Dragonfly for my Tattoo 008         Dragonfly for my Tattoo 009


I know now … which dragonfly I want.  I’ve had a hard time between two dragonflies a friend sent to me off Pinterest.  Oh, both are … perfect.

I chose the solid color dragonfly that is purple.  I decided on that one until … I kept being pulled back to the dragonfly that has a soft ‘green’ body, and the wings are soft colors, including soft purple. The dragonfly on the … left.

Purple and green are colors that are my good luck colors.  I want the dragonfly to be those colors.  The photo on the left is the dragonfly I chose … it was a very difficult decision.

I wonder if you will agree with me on my choice.  I would be happy to hear your thoughts on this.  Which one would you pick?  The one on the left … or the one on the right?

I have decided also, who to get to do the tattoo.  When it’s time, I will share it in photos.

Jason Wilkins at Dystinkd Tattoos on … 215 S. Bickett Blvd, Louisburg, NC  919-265-7353 … is who I chose out of two tattoo artists.

Oh … not only are tattoos done there … he has people who do piercings, permanent makeup and such. If you go there, just mention Gloria/Granny Gee and the dragonfly.

I’ve been following Jason’s work online, listening to others who got their tattoos  … for quite some time.  I’m impressed by his shop … it’s sterile like a doctor’s office … I have noticed he takes such pride in his shop.  He encourages people to be careful when they go for a tattoo. It made a very good impression on me.

See, I’ve never been in a tattoo shop … I only heard about them!  Jason’s shop has a good reputation.

I’m excited now, that I know which dragonfly I want … without a doubt.  I’m excited I have chosen the tattoo artist I want now … without a doubt.

Okay … why is doing all this to get a little dragonfly so important?  Because it’s going to be my dragonfly … in memory of my son, Tommy … who died May 29, 2010.  It has deep meaning to me … it has to be … right.

This is the second ‘major’ decision I’ve taken such a long time in deciding on, in two months.  I feel both decisions are positive, good for me.

It will be a few weeks before I get it done, when we have extra money.  Skip wants to get it done for me … I have to know that it’s time to get it done.  I will know when it’s time.

I hope you’ll take a moment to let me know what you think … do you like the dragonfly on the left best … or on the right … best?  Thank you.

Note by this Author:

The dragonflies were found on Pinterest … a friend sent them to me.  I’m not certain who the tattoos artists are … this is the only information I have:

…  ‘realistic purple dragonfly tattoo – Incredible work by talented tattooist Tan Yılmaz … for the solid purple dragonfly on right at top.

…  for the dragonfly with green body( on the left at top).

  1. I think you should take both images into the studio prior to making a final decision and discuss with the tattoo artist not only how either would turn out but also how they will age, certain colours and inks last longer keeping their colours clearer it may also be possible for him to create a unique combination of the two just for you especially if you explain their significance, once you have spoken to him you will get a better idea of the options then can make he decision that feels right for you 😀
