Full disclosure: it was this encounter that taught me an important lesson - my voice recorder doesn't do well on the subway.
I was able to ascertain that these companion pieces were inked with specific meanings. The blue tattoo on the right arm has the subtext of a break-up. Juxtaposed with that is the red piece which represents the rise of artistic expression.
These nearly-mirror image tattoos were credited to Shaun Carroll at Hod Rod Tattoo in Blackburg, Virginia.
Thanks to Mark for sharing these tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
