Chase has been asking for a few years now and has known exactly what he wanted and for the past 2 years he hasn't changed his mind. So we decided to let him do it. It met all the criteria -
He chose the spot (of course we both love this place) -
he met the artist -
got in the chair -
and then Shawn went to work -
and then the finished product -
Chase designed this in memory of my Dad, his Grandfather aka Butch. Even though my dad had little education, he worked hard and made a decent living. He was very successful. He built many houses within our area along with over 100 apartment units. To Chase, this was an empire. Dad/Butch overcame adversity. He lived by the Serenity Prayer from the time i was 16 until his last breath. The orange ribbon is for his Leukemia and the hammer for all the hard, hard work he did. Ronnie and I think this is an awesome tatoo. I love the meaning. If Dad were here, he would find something silly to say like 'you should have put a goat in there somewhere', haha!
So there you have it. Chase Bayley has his first tattoo. Woo hoo!
