This tattoo was inspired by two things: A love for pocket watches, and a German artist Cro. I have always been fond of pocket watches over wrist watches because I constantly took off and lost my wrist watches, plus, how classy is a pocket watch?! The time on the watch is when I was born, 7:46 PM and the little window shows the inside of the watch and all its little cogs. That small detail always reminds me to be grateful for the little things in life. Then the quote "Meine Zeit Ist Jetzt" means "My time is now" and comes from the song "Meine Zeit" by Cro, a popular German rapper. The song is about staying relaxed and having fun because it's your time.

They're called Irezumi. It is a traditional, japanese tattooing style that covers the entire body, but may be completely hidden from the public eye. In Japanese history, tattoos orginally had a dark meaning, and were used to punish and identify criminals and laborers. However, 200 years ago, middleclass men adopted Irezumi as an artistic act of rebellion. amazingstuff.co.uk
