TATTOO TUESDAY: LU Ink
By Audrey Kelly

Well hello there! I decided to feature Conner Grace Keeffe for my first post because I find her ink to be exceptionally unique, and quite aesthetically pleasing. It also has a great story behind it, allowing for good conversation with anyone who inquires (like myself). I think that’s the magic of these pieces of art: storytelling.
Conner decided on these tattoos to commemorate her camping trips over the past few summers.
After recently going on “the big trip,” a six week canoeing adventure into the Arctic, she decided this winter was the time to take the plunge, along with her other camp-mates.
She had always wanted to get inked because these experiences have been such an important part of her life, and they serve as a type of reminder of how far she has taken herself (literally on her canoeing trips, but also as a person.)
Her right foot features the word “river” in Inuit. She thought this was appropriate because the arctic trip was on Inuit land, and before the trip she had read up on their culture, and even stumbled upon some Inuit artifacts along her six week adventure, finally getting to meet Inuit people at the conclusion of her adventure.
The symbol on her left foot is the water pattern that is made by a canoe paddle stroke (she drew it herself!) It’s also significant of movement, relating back to her personal message of how far she has gone in her life.
Have a fantastic week all, check back for the next Tattoo Tuesday here at the Chameleon.
