    Soooooooo, last month I got my new tatoo started and then I got it finished right after we got back from Puerto Rico. The design is in honor of Karen and I getting married this past July. While we were down there we went to Playa Del Carmen the day before the wedding. While shopping around town we found a really cool tin art for our wall. It has two hearts next to each other with banner across it saying "unidos tu y yo" which means "united you and I". We thought it was a perfect momento for our wedding and now it's our living room.

    For the tattoo I used the hearts design along with two Mayan symbols which correspond to the month and day on the Mayan calendar of our marriage. It took a total of almost four hours to get done and a decent amount of money. But now, I have a permanent reminder of how happy and honored I am to be married to Karen. It's even on my left arm so that the hearts sit right next to my chest when I have my arms at my side.

    Hope you like!

    P.S. On a side note, I got a tattoo on the back of the same arm the day I met Karen. I got a horseshoe, dice, cards, flames and the number 13 to try and change my luck in preparation for our first date. I guess it worked!

    The tin art I based the design on

      I love it!!! The art/color is beautiful. And the meaning kicks ass. I love tatoos with deep meanings like that, and the Mayan is too cool. Just wonderful :o)
