This Totoro (based on a Miyasaki drawing) was made by Did, from Spirit Tattoo (Rennes, France) last december. He’s the beginning of a growing plant who’ll be on my arm. He represents so many to me, and above all, the perfect symbol for nature and my own childhood.
This is my third tattoo. It’s Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia. There are a lot of reasons I chose this tattoo, but this is the reason I got it on my left side:
