This tattoo belongs to Anthony “Givingtree”, who says:
Got this done in California, dedicated to my mother. She is my giving tree. On the other side of my ribs, I’m getting the old man sitting on the stump from the end of the book.

This is the carving the little boy etches into the tree. He later carves in another but that one is removed when he cuts down the trunk of the tree. This carving always remains til the end.
I always related to the giving tree. I think a lot of people misinterpret the story. It’s sad. There’s a lot of pain in loving someone so much who is busy not loving you back like the little boy, but whenever the boy returns, the tree is happy, and that’s all that matters to her at the end of the day.
