Yesterday our tattooist Tommy Seow received the unfortunate news of his dear Grandpa passing while tattooing a client, and he had to rush to Malaysia to attend the funeral right after tattooing. Although Tommy seemed calm when he left the tattoo studio, we all know that Tommy is filled with grief now as he often spoke of his childhood memories with Grandpa.
I have sketched up an American Traditional Burning Candle & Rose flash in loving memory of Grandpa and to show support for Tommy in this difficult time .. So what does a burning candle symbolize?? Some think it represents love, wisdom or beliefs.. Actually the true meaning of a burning candle in American Traditional Tattoos is LIFE..
Grandpa's wick had already burned out but the light he had emitted will forever be in Tommy and with FAMILIAR STRANGERS. RIP Grandpa...
