salt lake city tattoo

For my dad. The first love of my life. The reason for my vulgar humor and love of country music. The reason I drink coffee every morning. The reason I’m kind to everyone. My dad is a lot of things, alcoholic is just one of them and I choose to not just see that one side.

This is an “R” in sign language. R for Ryan, his name. And R for Rylee, my name. We’d throw this sign up whenever it was time for me to hop from his car to my moms when the weekend ended. I hope this tattoo means as much to him as it does to me.
