eek!!! a rat

teeny tiny rat tattoo recently done on a client who told me this story:

where she comes from, they have an old wives tale where a pregnant woman who gets frightened while carrying child imprints that scare/event onto said child in the form of a birthmark. well, when my client was born she had this small birthmark on her leg – everyone called it her ‘rat’ since her mother had the bejeezus scared out of her by a rat while gathering eggs, pregnant with her daughter. 🙂
