This tattoo I got on my right upper back shoulder about 2yrs ago. I was in a beautiful relationship with a Marine who deployed about 7months after we met, & I decided to get this tattoo that most people know it by "Claddagh" which is a traditional Irish symbol which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty). In my case I removed the hands & placed eagle wings because he was in the Marines and added this quote "Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder" because he was away on deployment. My first tattoo and loved it. Although were not together anymore it still means a lot to me because he showed me not all guys are the same and how a real man should treat a lady, such a beautiful relationship we had.
