One of my favorite fictional characters is The Scarlet Pimpernel. In the story, he’s an Englishman by the name of Sir Percival Blakeney, and he travels to France in disguise to save innocents from the guillotine during the French Revolution. He uses the moniker “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” because it is a common wayside flower, often overlooked as pretty but unimportant, when in actuality it is very hardy, and in some places considered a weed and nuisance. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart, so I love everything that Sir Percival Blakeney embodies in terms of romantic ideals. Also, I love the idea that when people see my tattoo, all they see is a pretty flower, failing to notice the hidden disguise.
Design is my own. Tattoo done at Jack Brown’s Tattoo Revival, Fredericksburg, VA.
