This may be my favorite holiday. Food and friends and thinking about all of the things in life that make it so good. Like food and friends. A really sweet family. A really cute dog and two really cute cats. My dream job in my dream studio with my dreamy coworkers. My really nice house and the amazing people that I get to live with. Having so much love in my life. I can’t wait to celebrate it all by eating a lot of stuffing with some of my favorite people. And some pie. I will probably have some mashed potatoes as well. And of course I will eat bacon because in my family it’s not Thanksgiving without the bacon.
I hope you have an awesome Thanksgiving.
Guess what I have been doing lately? It’s true! I’ve been tattooing!
This was a fun and unusual tattoo. My client comes from a highly freckled family. She gave me a map of the arm freckles that her mother and sister have and I created an armband of each. A subtle tattoo and such a sweet idea.
This project was also really fun. It was her first tattoo! My client asked for a simple branch on her forearm in a folk art style. I really love folk art designs and can’t wait until I get to do another one!
I also recently did the shading for Brett’s falcon. We are still in progress and I can’t wait to finish! Stay tuned for the color!
I must tell you. Winter time is the best time to get a tattoo. You don’t have to worry about hiding your tattoo from that pesky sun and you don’t have to worry about not being able to go to the river because it’s really really too cold to go swimming people. Until recently I hadn’t been tattooed since the threat of summer weather. I am lucky to have the lovely Betty Marie working on my leg and it looks soooo cool. Guys, despite my cheerful disposition in this photo, tattoos hurt. It’s true.
