tattoo tuesday is back! been a while, eh?
today we travel back over the pond to the isle of skye to check out a little body ink - a memorial tat on the arm of a very lovely lass named siobhan.
siobhan was our server at the the charming and delicious harbour view seafood restaurant in portree. she shared a bit of the story which inspired the tat which is in memory of her boyfriend who died a few years back. it has been a couple months since we were there, so i can't remember all of details of the sad tale, but i recall his name was ollie and that there was a car involved in his death.
i can't remember what the top row with chinese characters reads - perhaps it is a translation of his name or something else. below the characters is inked the german words ich liebe dich (i love you)
i didn't see it coming from the 2010 album belle and sebastian write about love
