As for the tattoo itself, it's a family piece. The angel represents my darling wife. The star is for our son, whom we called "our little star" when he was very young. The pumpkin is for our daughter, who is my little pumpkin girl that is growing up WAY too fast. The sack of money is for the dog, Cash.
This isn't my first piece of ink. I got one some years back that represents me and how I believe in myself...
Both pieces were done by Matt Diana at No Regrets Tattoos. I liked his work with the first piece enough that I tracked him down after he left the shop in town that he was originally associated with. If you're in the area and want some ink done, look Matt up. He's a very talented guy and will give pretty much what YOU want on your body, and not what he thinks you should have, unlike many tattoo artists I've met.
