Symbolic Shoulder Tree Tattoo. The sketch is pretty close. Want it to be a little less dark.
I'm looking for a shoulder tattoo sort of like the one attached. I need help bringing it all together. The roots obviously need a lot of cleaning up. I would like them to sort of hang below my shirt sleeve shirt, so they should look good on the bottom. I would like some blue leaves and the heart on the bottom to be filled in with blue. Everything else will be black. Maybe a little work on the tree trunks to make them more interesting. Knots? A quick poem I wrote about it...
A relationship is not an unbending tree
It twists and turns
Compromises and sacrifices
Eventually growing together as one entity
The final result may not be green leaves
They may be a beautiful blue
An unexpected but welcome surprise
The roots are the foundation
And letters from important influences and accomplishments are hidden here
Blood leaving the heart is red
After much hard work it returns to the heart much darker
The blue heart signifies this hard work at the base of a good relationship
And a good life
The letters I need in the roots are L, W, M, Z, B, A, D, C, UPG. They should all be very subtle.
Thanks for your help!

I added a few I drew at home. One I put eyeball in the trees. Probably don't need all the initials the more I think about it. Maybe just W and L. Also can't decide on tree. Round versus maybe evergreen/conifers? Thanks.

Defintely open to changes though.
