Tattooed: Sara Alexis

This tattoo was thought up on my drive across Canada to move to Whitehorse. I knew I would get a tattoo once I lived here but I didn’t know what I wanted until I took a picture of the road ahead of me with the mountain ahead and the trees lining the road. Though it could be representative of many of the drives I have taken in Northern Canada, it specifically symbolizes my solo drive up here. I was lucky enough to find Buzz at Triple J’s who took my picture and turned it into more of a painting and framed it well with a vintage baroque frame that suits my style. I will always have this tattoo as a reminder of when I packed up and moved across the country to this beautiful territory.
