five favorites

If you are new to my blog, or just feel like getting to know me a little better, while looking at pretty pictures, you should head over to Megs' beautiful blog, PaperJot for her five favorites blog post. Thanks again Meg, you are wonderful! <3


It's been a really busy week, I took the train to Seattle on Monday where Shaun picked me up, we met up with Corey and Heather and had lunch. Then Shaun and I headed over to Apocalypse Tattoo where Shaun works, and we got set up and ready for my tribute to Norway, finally, or should I say about time.

After the show we went out for some delicious food again, and then to a show. I haven't been to a hardcore show in years, and it totally felt like I had gone back in time, being there with Shaun and Corey. It was really fun though. We went to the market the next day, then had vegan ice cream and coffee. Yum!


And some abnormally large photo booth pictures. 


The train ride home was beautiful, I had a window seat, it was really sunny outside, and hardly any people on the train. I must have listened to Editors - Back room, about a million times. <3

I've been back at work since Wednesday and I feel like I have been tattooing non stop, I did some pretty big tattoos, and lots and lots of drawings. Crazyness, but oh so fun!  If you are in the area, you should come see me



(in progress)


I'm working on some pretty fun drawings, and I also have some good tattoos coming up! I'm excited! My desk at work is a hot mess right now, and I just organized and threw out all my old sketches yesterday. Ugh.





When I am not making a mess at my desk, I am our riding my new (old) bicycle. Meet Dita, how pretty is she! <3 I'm so obsessed with her! We've had beautiful weather here lately so I've taken her out for rides all over town. SO fun!


I have to get back to work. I hope you all have beautiful sunny weather, and aren't trapped inside! <3

xoxo

Sounds like you have a lot on the go. And omg, I'm not the only one that named my bike. I got a new bike a few weeks ago. A Nirve Minx(3 speed). It's black with leopard trim. I named her Stella. I love riding to work.

Nice work. If I lived by you I'd totally come in to have my back finished.
Love you new-old bike, too.

Your bike is gorgeous!!! I'm so jealous. It's wonderful to find your blog. I'm a fine artist who works in pen and ink but I've always been intrigued by tattoo artists. Can't wait to see what you post next!
