Slowly chipping away at Alyssa’s plague doctor inspired piece. We did a long session today. It wraps a bunch, can’t wait to put the final touches on this bad boy!

Jared originally got this piece we call “Yggdrasil” a year ago. I am thankful to have had the chance to touch it up, and give it the texture it deserved. This work in progress will have a space/galaxy scene to the background in the future. The twisty texture in the tree is a week into healing, I put TattooDerm on him to speed up the healing - love that stuff! Thank you for looking!

Happy #caturday ! I made this a couple years ago, and keep it above my station at work. I look at it whenever I miss Lucy, which use to be a lot during those 10-12 hour shifts I use to pull.

Do it. Let’s get weird. (at Southbound Studios)

Do it. Let’s get weird. (at Southbound Studios)

I feel good about my skin today. I’ve fought with acne for an incredibly long time, since my parent’s divorce when I was 10/11. I was always a picker, but when the stress set in of their separation - it became my stress coping mechanism. Sitting in the bathroom for hours just trying to find something, ANYTHING (and get rid of it) made me feel better… My father put me on medications, cremes, lotions, etc. Nothing helped because I didn’t stop picking. I got into piercing/tattooing because it made me feel good about my body. Having a low self esteem as a child, carrying on into my late 20s now— I understand why I felt/feel/do/did. Today is a day I am proud of my skin, and especially my face. I started using an alpha hydroxy acid, called Mandelic Acid in serum and peel form. My completion went from broken out, blotchy, congested and dull (3 weeks ago).. to evened-out, subaceous filaments (what you think are black heads on your nose) GONE, zero jaw line cystic acne, and glowy!  I have NEVER been able to say this. I want to thank @janessabates_tattoo for turning me onto the sub - reddit ‘Skin care addiction’. It has made a difference in how I feel about me face, and that speaks volumes. To anyone who suffers with low self-esteem from acne - please read the skin care addiction forum. It will make a positive difference in your life.

The only reliable transportation I’ve ever had, good ‘ol 1986 Centurion. It doesn’t need its oil changed, I can get from point a to point b faster, and my ass doesn’t get hot as hell because I can bring it inside. My insurance cost is Free 99. Who needs a car when you have a beautiful bicycle to ride everyday? Wish I could sell that money dump I have sitting in the front of the house. #rideyourbike #itfeelsamazing #CenturionLeMansRS #12speeds #itgoesfast #iwillrunyouover #bicyclelove #bicycle #vintagebike

I had a great time talking with Neiva today, this is her first tattoo. Latin for “Fight your Demons”. Its on her front bicep, so its a little skewed looking because of the placement… She sat so well & didn’t even flinch!
