“It wasn’t abstract, at least not the way Finn had half expected it to be based on the glimpses he’d gotten. It started at the small of Poe’s back with two overlapping X-wing schematics that almost looked like roots, the design flowing upward from there like a stem, spanning across Poe’s shoulders. On his left shoulder blade was a tree, or the idea of a tree, odd and beautiful. On the right was an A-wing, and along Poe’s spine where the two met, the lines melded together, seamless, one and the same.
It was amazing.”

An interpretation of Poe's tattoo from ester_inc's fic "A-Wing, X-Wing, Y-Wait, B-Mine (Please)."
I first came across Ester's work six months ago now, and I was struck by their tattoo description. I couldn't get it out of my head. So I tried my hand at it.
