Fire and Ice Heart- The Heart represents the soul; who someone truly is. The Fire represents passion, verve, emotion. The Ice represents logic, confidence, calm. The two together fuse into a combo much stronger than their individual parts. Synergy.
This synergy makes up a large of the soul, hence the Heart.
I have always wanted a tattoo and like most people ( definitely not all) I wanted something that was “ME”. So, 37 years of age, it finally happens. I mean, granted it took a life changing event, recovery and thinking about my own traits.
Oh and I can’t forget… 2 missed appointments and months of sneding random messages of what I was looking for to my artist.
So ummm obviously the tattoo was going to be Heart related considering I had a little heart misfunction almost 2 years ago…..holy crap…2 years !!
The final result is a Fire and Ice Heart described meaning above. Each part of the description describes me or traits I wish I had or had previously possessed.
She is not complete yet but I am so proud of this tattoo. I love it more than I can express. It is a reminder of how far I have come, how far I will go, to never give up. I love showing it off every chance I get.
My Artist. I cannot say enough about this woman. She has patience like no other, I mean she had to deal with me right ?
Her name: Ashla Bee, she works at Human Kanvas in Airdrie, Alberta.
I have known this fantastic, talented woman for close to 10 years. I we worked at the same place and even starred in commercials when we were younger for that company.
There was no doubt in my mind that she was the one who I would ask to take on my tattoo. I loved seeing her artwork on Facebook and seeing how much she loves what she does. I knew she would listen to my craziness and add a little touch of “her” to the design.
Thank you Ashla for making this man so proud to wear your art, for making the experience a lot of fun and for being patient with me 🙂
