  1. Oooooh, I LOVE this. I’ve been thinking about a new tattoo, and what I’m thinking is a botanical illustration-style image of blackberry vines. Not sure where yet, and I don’t actually have the money to do it : ), but this is absolutely gorgeous and inspiring. I love those roots!

    • Thanks, Christine – I love botanical illustration-style tattoos also, and I hope someday you can save up enough to have something beautiful done! Blackberry vines would be lovely. They grow everywhere here – especially along freeways and dusty back roads.
