Colorful Feather Tattoo on Leg

Colorful Feather Tattoo on Leg

This feather tattoo done May 11, 2013 by Jim O’Rourke at Gen X Tattoos in Eastlake, Ohio.

My father was very into nature and unfortunately passed away when I was ten. For years we went to the cemetery every week and each time there would be a feather resting on his headstone. I stopped going weekly and now feathers show up on the side of my car, falling from the ceiling at work, pretty much everywhere, especially when I need him most. I like to think they’re little gifts from him, reminding me that he’s with me. The “Love, Dad” is in his handwriting.
