But we could thtill have a really good time.

And if you have anything to say or ask, please feel free!

So I was taking pictures for my boyfriend (like ya do in long distance relationships) and for some reason this picture turned out blurry. I’m a bit bummed because I really like the composition of it. 
Anyway, I thought I’d share.

My tattoo fucking ITCHES

I’m not scratching it or anything… but it’s peeling and I really wanna flake it off. I won’t, but I really want to. 

Maybe I should put on some lotion.

I feel like this is gonna need to be touched up, which sucks ‘cause I don’t wanna go through this healing process again.

Grump.

I have always loved space, science and discovery.  The Voyager 1 is mankinds first step outside our Solar System. Our first message to the stars. Our first picture of earth from 3.7 billion miles away. Like a baby’s first wobbly steps from a coffee table to the couch. We are finding our way in the universe.
Here is a bit of the inspiration for this piece Is there an Edge to the Heavens? by RadioLab. As a student of science (neuroscience, in particular) RadioLab Has continually inspired me.

Took two hours (ish). 

I’m exhausted and my shoulder hurts. Otherwise, I’m super happy with it.

I’m sure I’ll be more excited tomorrow.

These are my two rats Pratchett (the white one) and Vonnegut (the one on his hind legs). Vonnegut passed away last summer and Pratchett is still here causing problems. I love both of them to bits and I love that when I look over my shoulder, Vonnegut is reaching up to look at me, too.

One of my friends held my hand and kept me distracted during the entire thing. I mean, it still hurt, but it was really helpful having her support. Afterwards, we went to Denny’s for milkshakes. I got an Oreo one, she got a strawberry one.

Not that that is super important. I just wanted you to be a little jealous that I got this kick ass tattoo and an Oreo milkshake.

As Bender from Futurama would say, “Compare your lives to mine and then kill yourselves.” (But don’t really kill yourselves! Just be jealous about my awesomeness.)

Now I just need to figure out how to sleep.

I got my tattoo done! Took about two hours. I was expecting longer.

Originally I had just wanted the line drawings, but I’m glad I just went with it. The artist did a fantastic job. The one on his hind legs is Vonnegut and the white one laying down is Pratchett. The other pictures are the ones he used to make the picture.

I love that I can look over my shoulder and see Vonnegut’s face. :)

The Upper Room Tattoo, Santa Maria, California

Fuck.

I was just about to doze off, like, an hour ago if not longer and my mind started worrying.

I go in at 5 pm for a tattoo of two of my pet rats. It’s now quarter to 1 am here. I’ve only just figured out why I’ve been so nervous and it’s because it’s much more intricate than I had originally in my head. The artist just got really excited.

I like his work… I like what he has, but he wants to do full color and shading and that’s not what I wanted… I told him minimal but I think he was thinking “minimal portrait” instead of “minimal line work and shading”.

So I’m gonna go in at noon tomorrow right when they open and hope the artist isn’t too pissed at me and doesn’t make me reschedule out of spite. I think what he has could work, but I just want… less. It just took me a while to figure out why it was bugging me so much. Maybe I can work with him on what lines to keep in there and if it needs more, we can do more.

I just… I really don’t want full color. Some shading would be fine, but they were supposed to be more general rats modeled from two real ones I have/had (one passed away). 

And I can’t stop thinking about it which means I’m not gonna sleep for a little while longer.

Fuck.

Fuck…

FUCK. 

Why didn’t I think of this on Wednesday when I went to the shop?

One hour til I get my second tattoo!!!

I’m really nervous. There will be pictures following, but maybe not til tomorrow depending on how exhausted I am. Not sure how long it’ll take.

I’m really hoping the next two and a half days fly by…

Saturday I’m getting my second tattoo!!!

I took the concept pictures in today to the artist. He’s really excited. Said he’s looking forward to working on this.

I’ve been a little worried since I don’t have the final product yet, but with how excited he is, it’s pushed away most of the worries. Well, and the shop just reopened ‘cause he was out with his wife since they just had a baby. I saw one picture. Pretty typical new born squish face. lol

Anyway… I need to clean the rat cage, but I thought I’d share my excitement.

Pictures to come.

Got my first tattoo and went big, and definitely alien.  Do I even look like people?

Tattoo postponement… but I got my cupcake.

I called the shop today and turns out they’re closed (and have been for a little bit) because they had a baby. Yay!

So their shop won’t open until next week. I kinda hate putting it off, but totally understandable reasons.

I did stop into a different shop today to ask about getting a pin up girl tattoo (see picture below). He told me it’d probably take about 4 hours with the size I wanted and at $150 an hour… which seems reasonable. I’ll probably have to do two sittings due to monetary restrictions. I’d be getting the flowers done, too… the artist wants to put in the cliff edge, but I think that’ll be a second stage thing ‘cause I’m not sure I want it.

Placement wise, I want her on my hip and upper outside thigh. She’ll probably be around 8-10 inches tall. I’m talking to an artist to make her a little more curvy. Slightly bigger boobs- 1-2 cup sizes bigger and a slightly larger ribs and waist, but I like her hips and legs. My friend will be sure to make sure she’s proportionate. 

As a side note… I’d LOVE to get her done next month… Anyone feel like donating $5? My birthday’s coming up! $2? (There’s a donate button on my Tumblr linking to my Paypal account). Yeah… I’m not really expecting anything, I just thought I’d ask. Never hurts to ask. :)

Anyway, not that anyone cares about all this. Just talking and watching Supernatural and being bored…

My first Doctor Who related tattoos :D
I watched every single episode of Doctor Who and Torchwood in order, 137 episodes. It took me just under 2 weeks, including working full time. So I thought I’d celebrate by getting a Doctor Who inky (: 
It’s the Gallifreyan language (From the Doctors home planet) and it says Space and Time. This was a few hours after I got it done, and it was done by Ya in BellyBar in London (: Well worth the 3 hours of pain (:

Got this done by Peter Joseph @ Legendary Tattoos ( Tarpon springs, FL)  My fiancee introduced me to Doctor Who and I fell in love with it.  It took about 2 1/2 hours, he used no line work and just did it straight through!  Pain wasn’t unbearable, bled a lot but it was worth it :)

This dude put up a picture of his leg in a tattoo blog. Isn’t that ridiculous? Why did he shave his leg? 
People are ridiculous.
