In memory of my Mom and Grandma.

I got this tattoo on March 23, 2011, a day after my Mom's birthday. Long story short, my Mom passed away on December 20, 2010 from injuries sustained in a car accident. My Grandma passed away four days later from her injuries from the same accident. They were my heart and meant the world to me. Losing them was, and still is, hard for me. I got this tattoo in memory of them. I got their initials RJW (my Mom) and LN (my Grandma), with angel wings surrounding it because they were my angels, and they still are. The tattoo is placed on the upper part of my inner left arm, so when I put my arm down, the tattoo is right next to my heart. This might be just another tattoo to most, but it's a very special tattoo to me.
