CJ's Blackbird...

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly...

Always a favorite Beatles song of mine, I learned it's the theme song for a young friend born with cerebral palsy. She wanted her third tattoo to be the Beatles' blackbird. I offered to try my hand at the design, which evolved to better-fit CJ as she soars fiercely and confidently at 9 miles/hour in her wheelchair. And always fueled by her need to help the less fortunate.

...Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
