I have something amazing to share with you!
My reader, Dawn, sent me this gorgeous photo of a mermaid tattoo she is in the process of having done. When she told me that she was giving the mermaid red hair and green eyes as a tribute to Visola, I got so emotional. This is one of the greatest compliments that I have ever received. Visola is in my heart every day, but I never imagined she would mean so much to someone else! To have a permanent reminder of her displayed in such a bold and beautiful way—it is very much in the spirit of Visola herself.
Thank you, Dawn, for sharing this magnificent piece of art. I can’t imagine how excruciating it must be to receive that tattoo and I admire your tolerance of suffering in the name of creating something lovely and meaningful. I might be completely biased—but I think it’s stunning work!
Dawn was nice enough to give me permission to share this artwork with you, created by tattoo artist Michael Fachinni. As fellow mermaid lovers, I bet many of you can appreciate this!
