If any of you follow me on twitter I’m sure you’ve seen my tagline “Tattooed Renaissance Historian” – and that’s for good reason! I have a fair few tattoos, a couple of which are inspired by my very favourite Italian Renaissance family!
Today is my 29th birthday. I’ve been waiting for a while to get my next Borgia inspired tattoo but I though “why not get it on my birthday?” – so, I booked the appointment and off I toddled to the local tattoo artist.
And here is the final result:
Isn’t it just stunning?! As I’m sure you’re all aware I already have Cesare’s motto tattooed on my arm, but I wanted something else. And for the longest time the Borgia coat of arms has been in my head. I took the idea in to my local tattoo artist and he had a play with a few ideas until he came up with the above design. And I couldn’t be happier.
Do any of you guys have any historically inspired tattoos? Comment below or over on the facebook page!
For now, I shall be drinking red wine and eating Red Velvet Cake in celebration of being old!
