I’ve been considering an owl tattoo for awhile – to honor my grandma. Currently she is dying and likely won’t survive the week, While I was sitting on the porch tonight crying (I’ve never lost anybody, ever) I was trying to place how I feel for my grandma. In my whole life my grandparents are the only people who’ve always been there, never judging what I think or where I come from but always guiding me with out directing me… pointing the right way while still letting me choose my ultimate direction. I decided I was going to get an owl perched on a compass. I’ve been looking for the perfect owl for years and thought I had settled on getting one that looked as real as possible. Searching to see what some designs look like, I Googled “Owl Compass” and your picture came up. I‘m still on the hunt for great designs, because while this one is beautiful – its a little complicated.
