I met Jessica last Friday night before game 1 of the New York Liberty-Detroit Shock playoffs at Madison Square Garden. Her neck tattoo caught my eye as I was going to Will Call to pick up my tickets (to hear about the game, go here), so when I was walking back outside and she was still there (talking to Jason, whose tattoo will be next to appear here), I introduced myself.

For some reason, the photo came out a little blurry. My apologies.

Jessica explained that this tattoo is the pagan symbol of the cycle of womanhood (cue a comment from NeoPagan Ink, below). She also told me that her fiancée has the same tattoo.

Some folks believe, Jessica noted, that tattoos can help someone find the way to their soulmate in the afterlife. This is one element that makes matching tattoos on people more romantic, if one believes that their ink transcends death.

This piece was inked by Gio at Crazy Fantasy Tattoo in Manhattan. Gio now works at Village Pop Inc. Work from Crazy Fantasy has appeared previously here. Work from Village Pop has appeared here.

Thanks to Jessica for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
