My tattoo: Bauhinia, the flower of Hong Kong

Posted by Maureen Saturday, November 29, 2008 Labels: , ,

People often ask me what the tattoo on my foot is. It is this flower, the Bauhinia, to commemorate my time living in Hong Kong. Of course, it's a different version of it seen on Hong Kong's flag. But here's a shot I found on flickr of the real thing. I miss that place.
