When thinking of traditional Americana tattoos, there is perhaps none more iconic than the red heart with a banner emblazoned with the word "Mom".
Sailors would get these tattoos, featuring either "mom" or the name of a special girl in their life, as a way to keep their loved ones close.
The heart is a beautiful piece of Rosarita, also known as gold slag since it was a by-product of the Alaskan gold refining process in the 1950s and 60s. I cut out "MOM" by hand to bring the banner over the heart to life.
