Now the "rosy-fingered Dawn" in the quote makes sense.
(Original description of the tattoo: It's of a Greek ship. Underneath, the lettering says [in Greek]: "When new born Dawn came on with her rose-fingered daylight". It's a quote from Homer's "The Odyssey", which my dad used to read to me when I was a kid.)
Amazing work done by the great Steven Huie of Flyrite Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY
