There’s a very exciting story behind this tattoo. I was looking for a tree to tattoo for quite some time when i ran into this illustration, here on tumblr. I found the artist and got in contact with her, asking permission to use it as a tattoo. I dint know where she was from or anything else. She said ok. So I had it done and loved it. During this time, i was going through a separation from my long time boyfriend. he was living in a different country and we werent together anymore. But i showed him the drawing. He got in contact with the artist, who coincidently was from the same city he was living in. He wanted to buy the print for me. So he told her our story and what he was planning to do, and she gave him the original illustration. Some time later, he came back to my country and asked me to marry him, giving me the framed drawing as a gift. It was all a big surprise and amanzingly everything was connected. Thats how small our world is. I’m from brazil, the artist is from Finland, my boyfriend was living in Italy, but when I showed him the picture, he was staying in Finland for a few months. Strange beautiful things.
