The new tattoo is the old tattoo

On the day that I did not especially celebrate my 55th birthday, I did get my tattoo touched up. The original was done in Hawaii by a peace activist who trained as a marine sniper to understand what it means to be a warrior. The tattoo has three components which iconographically represent my sons three names: Willow Star Falcon

Santa Cruz circa 2012 today

Starting at the end. When Hawina changed her name, I gave her the little bird icon she places where the dot in the i would be. When she Anglicized her last name to Falcon, this bird became representative of that name choice. When Willow was born, the written version of his name uses a W which is comprised of two overlapping Vs. These Vs evolved into the Falcon bird from about the I in Hawina’s name. The middle star is a star.
