I dedicated this tattoo who passed away from Dementia last year. Mum was a true fighter, she had frontal lobe dementia from a brain injury caused by epilepsy. Mum was born in the back streets of Liverpool in the 40’s. She was born to a single mum and was abused as a child. Mum then married my dad who is from India. She again was a victim of abuse, this time racial. Mum taught me how to be strong, how to face adversity and how to survive. My open heart inspired tattoo, reflects mums strength and love.
