When I stopped Kristen at our local grocery store, I did so to ask her about her sleeve, which was coming along nicely.
Kristen recognized the name of the blog and informed me that she was familiar with us here at Tattoosday, because her sister Lauren, and her friend Amanda, have already appeared on the site (click their names to see their work).
So it didn't take much persuading to have Kristin share some of her work and we went with this small piece on her inner right wrist:
Kristen teaches kids with autism and the puzzle piece is a symbol used to raise autism awareness. Autism Speaks is one organization that raises money to fund autism research that uses the symbol prominently in its literature.
As a child of educators, I admire the work that most teachers do, but am in awe of those who commit their lives to helping teach kids with special needs. It's an honor to have Kristen and her tattoo on the site.
The tattoo was inked by Michael Bellamy at Red Rocket Tattoo in Manhattan. Click here to see work from Red Rocket previously featured on Tattoosday, much of which was done by Mr. Bellamy.
Thanks again to Kristen for sharing a piece of her tattoo collection with us here at Tattoosday!
