we start and end with family

Happy Family Day to certain Canadians.  This is Emily‘s tattoo.

“I decided that I wanted to make a very clear statement about my love and dedication to my family…specifically my mother, my father and my brother. For the first 25 years of my life it was just the four of us and this tattoo is a tribute to that very special time.”

    Love this tatttoo. Would like the same quote, but thinking of getting it done in some form of ancient sacred western calligraphy with the first letter illuminated with some balck/red enhancement. I want it to look like some sacred manuscript.

    Can you give any information about the quote. I've googled it and also anthony brandt but cannot find much.
