HONORING PUERTO RICO

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Today I visited my tattoo artist again for add ons, updates, coloring and, mostly, for completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

It is still a bit swollen, it’s still a bit ‘shiny’. 

The process is almost totally done.

Give a few weeks for skin healing and then another ‘sitting’ for any needed last detail.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share the ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

Today I visited my tattoo artist again for add ons and updates.

We added a ‘cemí’, several hibiscus flowers and a ‘Taíno coquí’.

A touch of red was added too.

Here they are!

There are still some details and more colors to be added to the artwork.

SUNRISE IN BORINQUEN

There’s nothing like awakening to a sunrise in Puerto Rico.

There’s an amazing beauty in the promise of a new day.

There’s one moment in time when all stands still and all is OK!

JUMPING WITH JOY 

You don’t need a special reason.

All you need is to be on the wall of an old fort in Puerto Rico.

You see the guard’s station …. ‘Garita del Diablo‘, you see the ocean, you feel the breeze, you see the blue sky.

Your heart swells.

The happiness of being there overtakes you.

You feel your roots and your heritage.

You can’t help but jump with joy!

TOTALLY PUERTO RICAN

This is an awesome graphic. Any Puerto Rican would agree.

There’s a bit of everything:

Puerto Rican flag

Puerto Rican musical instruments .. including “el cuatro”

El Morro Fort, “Garita del Diablo”

Local skyline at sunset

Something like a “wannabe Coquí”

…. and, of course, Puerto Rican Pride.

I love this graphic.
