I got this tattoo the day I turned 18, October 27, 2011. The original artist is Courtney Brims, tattoo was by Ashley Neuman and Rockstar Tattoo in Milwaukee, WI.
I got this tattoo because Courtney is my favorite artist and many more reasons. My grandpa, who basically raised me loved nature. His two favorite birds are golden finch and a blue jay. Right when I saw the picture, I had to get it done. It also reminds me of myself, a mixture of good and bad, sweet yet morbid.
