This is Elly.(45) If you want to know more – Google- Educate and Celebrate.



This is Elly’s new tattoo.

The story behind her tattoo is this:

It’s the past, the present and the future. The Spanish moon moth flying away to represent all the bad things, now thankfully, gone. The orange lily for pride, which is my present, and the beautiful butterfly for the world of social justice, which I strive to live, in the future!

Where all are treated equally and fairly – so jump on the rainbow bus and not get off until we reach the special land of social justice!

This is Vanessa, with her tattoo for her Dad.

The tattoo was crafted by Shantel Shepherd


Shantel Shepherd

Memorial tattoo for my dad, it’s his full name and date of birth – date of death with RIP after.

My dad passed away on Father’s Day 07 after a melanoma on his lip spread to his brain resulting in multiple tumors.
It is on my back and is quite large , I chose my back as I wanted it to be a large piece that I could wear with pride.
The extra special part of this Tattoo is that it was designed and done by my best friend of now 16 years (Shantel Shepherd) at her house in the company of my partner Nicole .

My dad was diagnosed in Febuary of 07 only after he suffered a stoke when a Tumor close to his cerebellum grew in size causing a bleed. The melanoma itself was removed over a decade before he had his stroke .
So this piece is extremely important to me and I already have plans to extend out to include the outspread wings of an eagle 😊 so to be continued !image

This tattoo was chosen for my nephew who died in a car accident in 2008. He owned a Grader company and drove graders. So I wanted a tattoo to remind me of him and his nickname Grump.

I chose to get it put on my right breast because I wanted it somewhere where it wasnt easily seen, (and I already had one on the other breast) because it was for me, so I could see it.  It was put there too, because it was out of the sun, to protect it.
