About Me

My photo
Over the last few years I've worked in different tattoo shops, doing different things. I've covered greeting customers, cleaning the shop, making stencils, drawing tattoo designs, all the way to tattooing. Now, I've taken a break from tattooing for a while to learn new things about the industry. I'm taking trips and going to as many tattoo conventions as I can. After I do this, I will go back to tattooing. As for me, I currently have over 10 tattoos and nine piercings. Don't worry, I plan on getting many more.

Dermal Anchors

Who's wondered what a dermal anchor is? The way they are inserted? Does it hurt? How long is the healing time? How do you care for this new foreign object that's been put into your body?

These are all important questions to ask before getting one.

In the next day or so I'll be posting new information pertaining to dermal anchors. I have experience with them myself being that I have two.

Hopefully this will be informative to many of you.

And to think I grew this from a seed.

Coffee and cigarettes

The house where my husband and I live has an amazing balcony. It's as big as the average bedroom probably. Although it doesn't have a view of anything spectacular, like the beach or a city, It's still very enjoyable.

Each morning my husband gets up and makes coffee and we sit on the balcony either talking about what the day will bring or reading books. We always drink coffee and smoke cigarettes. Those things may not be that healthy, but we enjoy them.

We worry about a lot of things; money, bills, life in general, but while sitting on the balcony we don't have to.

It's a simple joy in our lives, but it means a lot.

I think I'll keep her

Recently, a tiny kitten showed up at my house. I believe she was born next door at an old house which is for sale.

I found her because when I was outside in my backyard one day playing with my dog I heard an awful sound coming from one of the kittens. I ran outside and saw her, but she fled. I tried to get her to come back but she was too afraid.

I decided I couldn't let her starve so I put some ham and milk out. She didn't really touch it the first day or so. After a couple of days had passed she got used to me and my husband and started coming to us wanting to be rubbed and petted.

Now she's just as playful as can be and doing very well. I think I'll keep her.
