My ASL tattoo completed. It's fingerspelled A-S-L for American Sign Language. The handcuffs represent the oppression and bans that ASL has been through in the past and the melting of the handcuffs symbolizes how incredibly lucky I am to be able to use American Sign Language today. The handcuffs melting symbolizes my freedom to use ASL.
MANY thanks to Nathan King of Dogstar Tattoo Company in Durham, NC. He was patient with me nitpicking the design, and he has an incredible talent for shading.
Thanks also go to Tracy Fox for being my photographer.
