I was born on Father's Day. It has been said that I was a "daddy's girl" from the start. The story goes that he picked my name. Apparently, my mother preferred Meredith. Not that there's anything wrong with the name Meredith, but I have always felt like Erin suited me.
My dad calls me "Sweet Girl". Always has, and still does. My dad likes to spend time to pick out just the right greeting card for special occasions. (I picked up this trait from him.) On the envelope and/or inside, he address many of them to me as "Sweet Girl". I used an envelope from a recent card as inspiration for my next permanent piece of body art.
I met with Melanie (ig: melaniemilnetattoos) and talked about what I had in mind. I like sweet things, and the color pink, and strawberries, and cupcakes, and the fact that my dad calls me "Sweet Girl". She used his handwriting to create this tattoo around it.
I sat for about an hour. We chatted. We listened to Silverchair.
Then, this masterpiece was unveiled.

Speaking of my mother, Melanie and I have one planned to honor my mother coming up in December. Whether my mom likes it, or not.
Do you have any tattoos that honor a family member?
