Hi. I saw the submission of your tattoo on FYT. It's stunning. The artwork is phenomenal, and technically very well done. I would be very interested in knowing more about what it means to you. Also, I'm curious if it's your artwork, Hailin Fu's, or flash. Thanks!
Thank you! It does actually mean a lot. I let Hailin have complete control over the design. (He did it freehand—definitely not wall material)
My side’s all about self-progression and growth. I’ve got a piece on my ribs that means a lot as well, but this was an extension of that. The clock is at 9pm, because my dad killed himself on 9/9/99, the fireflies symbolize following your own path, the faces are obviously the hard times, there are Buddhist symbols for happiness around the clock, etc. Sorry I’m not being super in-depth, it’s quite a bit to explain, but yeah—it’s all about self-progression and just making it through.
