    My Mama, The Light of my Life


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ekirouac422 says her mom is her best friend. So, in order to show her how much she loves her, she got this tattoo in her honor. 'My Mama is the biggest inspiration in my life. She has always guided me to the light, even in my darkest days. I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for her.'
    - jne2013, CNN iReport producer

    I got my tattoo in January of this year. I had be waiting until I knew exactly what I wanted out of the tat. I chose a Lighthouse for two reasons, One because as long as I can rememeber she has collected lighthouses. Two because my Mama is the biggest inspriration in my life, and She has always guided me to the light, even in my darkest days. She is the Light of my Life. I love that the Lighthouse is set on a Bible instead of a rock or anything normal. My Mama has always been and continues to live by her Faith, so this to me just made the tattoo even more perfect. I love showing people my tat because it tottally repsresents my Mama in every way. She is not too fond of tattoos, but to my surprise when I showed it to her , she had a tear in her eye and said it was beautiful. That meant everything to me because I want to show the world how much my Mama means to me.
