Fertility Goddess on the N Train

    I met Patricia on the N train to Brooklyn. Generally, I am less inclined to ask people on the train about their ink, but Patricia's tattoo was so interesting, I couldn't resist.

    She seemed very interested in Tattoosday as she explained that she got this piece in Puerto Rico. Based on the brief snippets of our conversation (she rushed off the train at the next stop), this is a likeness of a fertility goddess in TaĆ­no culture. Note the similarity to this petroglyph:

    According to this website, this petroglyph represents "the chief female diety Atttabeira, the fertility goddess. Her image is carved on a large stone in the main ball court of Caguana, Puerto Rico."

    Thanks to Patricia for sharing her ink on the train!

    Editor's note: Patricia, feel free to e-mail me a clearer picture of your tattoo, when you can. Thanks again!
