I’m sitting over here obsessing over my tattoo, looking at it and wanting to cry. Both because it’s so ridiculously beautiful and because in the excitement of getting it done/designing it..I had forgotten what provoked me to get it in the first place.
It’s been a few weeks since Vader left us for the foxy gates and Tumblr is surely less bright without his silly, ridiculously happy face around. I’ve wanted a fox portrait to adorn my body for quite some time, but I never thought it’d be of an individual fox that I never want to forget. Anyone that saw Vader and followed MaytheFoxBeWithYou knows just how special of a creature he was and how there will never be another spirit like his. I can’t thank Tara and Eric enough for sharing your little piece of heaven with us and I wish you and Athena all the best in the world. Foxy and I are sure he’s eating all of the chickens in the world right now and just waiting for you to join him.
My indescribably wonderful friend Bexxy (http://vpuvd.tumblr.com/) worked with me to help design this until it was a little piece of perfection. My artist, Alexandra from Bleed Blue in Lexington, KY sealed the deal and finalized what is probably now my favorite part of my body.
This piece will never even remotely replace such a lovely soul, but it sure is a nice reminder that they exist. May the fox always be with you.<3
