Growing up in Las Vegas does not mean that at the age of 19 it’s a good idea to go to the strip and get a stupid tattoo. Learn from my mistake kids.
On the bright side, if I didn’t have a shitty tattoo to cover up, I probably wouldn’t have gotten this beauty done by Alice Kendall at Infinity Tattoo in PDX. That gal is an amazing talent and also a fucking sweetheart too.
Despite what some people seem to think, these are not roses. Their official name is Ranunculus (I still have a hard time pronouncing that word) but these gems are also known as Persian Buttercups. Not only are they one of my favorite flowers, but when I was a little girl my favorite Grandma’s nickname for me was Buttercup. Total win.
