I have really wanted to get a memorial tattoo for my Dad and for the babies I lost for a very long time. A few weeks ago I finally went and did it. (I am TERRIFIED of needles, so I've been putting off getting a tattoo for years and years.)

For those that don't know, my Dad was a truck driver for most of his adult life. His CB 'handle' was Papa Smurf. Dad passed away 5 years ago in January. This tattoo seemed absolutely perfect to me (though it is a work in progress, as I will be adding to it. I want to add 8 butterflies (one for each of my miscarriages) and my two kids' birth flowers will be tied in some how. I am also going to eventually add my Dad's name and his date of birth/death too. I haven't decided for sure whether I will add the mushroom house the smurfs lived in or not.

The tattoo is on the outside of my right calf. It will probably eventually take up most of my lower leg.
