  1. I love this! Beautiful idea and beautiful bubba. I’ll take 5 of both 🙂

  2. This would be an awesome tattoo, too – around the wrist 🙂

    • If only I was braver. I decided when I was nineteen that I would get a tattoo if I still wanted the same tattoo in two years time, hence I have no tattoos and it shows how fickle I can be x

  3. It always seem the more simple the project the more beautiful it is . Well done!
