When my brother was in high school he used to go out with his friends and steal garden gnomes from people’s lawns. He ended up with around 30 gnomes from all over the area. He was also always obsessed with stars and I loved the idea of incorporating them into the tattoo as well. I always associated him with gnomes, and I got this tattoo because we’ve always been close. Even if I move far away, I’ll be sure that he’s still there and only a phone call away. Love you bro.
