Holiday, schmoliday.

I’m going to make some muffins.

Then I’m going to go to work and tattoo some grapefruit.

At the military MCX, a 25-oz. bottle of Goldschlager is about $23…

that’s $1 an ounce. If ppl who have nothing better to do with their money really want to impress their friends, they should try doing shots of tattoo ink instead.

It’s about $8 - $10 an ounce.

Friday thoughts

- Inexplicably down today. I wish I could figure out why, so I can get over it.

- Shaving that slab of fatback gets to be added to the Top Ten list of Grossest Things I’ve Done.

- Getting my last paper together for the divorce. Maybe there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

- I love the lace pattern I’m knitting right now.

- Boyd said to get a black & shaded design together. Hope I get to tattoo some more today.

- How can I feel hungry & stuffed at the same time?

BBL. Ima tattoo some pork.

 mychaels answered your question: Another Truthful Tuesday eager and you found a passion. that’s not bad

Babe, I had plenty of passion to begin with. But this one will allow me to provide for my kids in a better way than I do now. And, I’m nearing the end of my apprenticeship, things are accelerating, two days away is a lot at this point.
And, the passion thing… LOL

Friday morning thoughts

I probably have to tattoo myself today.

I have no idea what Boyd is going to have me to do, though I’ve been working on and we’ve been discussing components of my thigh mural, so probably something from that. I don’t know what.

Strangely, this doesn’t disconcert me. I’m not even nervous about it.

The morning breeze coming in my windows feels nice, and I can hear birds, and Betsy snoring.

I’m ravenously hungry this morning. I need some protein.

I get tomorrow off. Good thing since I have to marinate 20# of ribs and cook as much in advance as possible for the 12 of us and help the kids dye eggs.

We’re going to use silk neckties to dye eggs again this year. Last year we blew out the eggs, used the insides for omelets and dyed the shells (weighting them down with a plate). The results were beautiful.

Tattoo Tuesday

This is Marvin. He isn’t perfect, but he was my 1st tattoo in skin.
He’s hanging out at the tat shop with me while I draw pretty pictures.
With any luck, later today I’ll give him a companion.

I am tracing this leg mural with a pencil stuck through a tattoo machine, for the 7th time.

I’m gonna get good at this or die trying.

I got the tracing done. He said, “Good, now do it in pen.”

Practice, Inc.

Or, ink. Boyd had me draw my leg mural, on the leg, today for practice.
Red lines are trial, black lines would be the stencil.
Webcam pics, sorry.
Enjoy.

BADASS!!!

I love this design even better now seeing it on the skin. It’s gonna be one hell of a tattoo. For a little while I’m gonna look like a coloring-book page, with it being all outlines. But little by little as I learn different color techniques, it’ll be colored in & then it is going to KICK ASS.

Today I am sitting at the feet of the master’s master (mistress?)

I get a lot of weird looks when I use the correct terms.

I am an apprentice. The correct term for the person who teaches me, is the master.

Today I am helping and observing Miss Autumne, the shop owner, the big boss. A nationally-recognized tattoo artist, self-taught, who has been in the business for 20 years. I am really grateful to be able to have this opportunity.

But since she’s a woman, isn’t she the Mistress?

I am not into bdsm, thank you, so it’s a little confusing to me.

And a LOT confusing to the average person who hears me say it. LOL

Take this, Monday, and shove it.

I just spent 3.5 hours building a tattoo machine from the ground up
Out of spare parts. Brand new coils and capacitor though. Brand new ends soldered on. Brand new wire insulators.

And it doesn’t WORK!
And Boyd isn’t speaking to me.

Alright so today I built that tattoo machine like a boss.

I also took Boyd’s Flatline that wasn’t running right & fine-tuned it. He said I can use it until I get my own. It is one sweet machine.

The new one I built is too. It has 12-wrap coils (for speed) and sparkly red iridescent coil covers.

Why is it always the sparkly bitches that give ya trouble?
