Sarah & Joey, saints and sinners

Names:  Sarah and Joey
Date of tattoos:  May 2006
Artist:  Dave Waugh
Studio:  Jinx Proof Tattoo
Location:  Washington, DC
Gallery debut:  2006 September 1st

Quotation tattoos are based on:
"The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future." ~Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance, 1893, spoken by the character Lord Illingworth

On Sarah's forearm is "Every Saint Has A Past" which has the personal meaning that even though one makes mistakes in life, it does not mean that they are not meant to do great things. On Joey's forearm is "Every Sinner Has A Future" meaning that regardless of where one is in life, every moment is an opportunity to better oneself. As stated above, each tattoo has personal meaning to each on an individual basis. However, the full meaning and perspective can only be seen when they are together. To us this means that while we each have our own individual perspective on life, the general meaning is the same. It is our Yin and Yang, our likenesses and differences.
