Tatted Musical Notes – designed by Nancy Tracy and tatted by Natalie Rogers.

I was trying to figure out what to tat as the first challenge of 2014. I went back and forth between snowflakes, various animals, and all sorts of amazing designs by many different designers. Finally, I decided that music was the way to go. I love celebrating with music! Music plays a big role in both my memories and how I prepare for things to come. So I hope you enjoy a New Year full of music, laughter, and loved ones!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
