Such a great piece on Cool Hunting today!
Veteran tattoo artists that happen to be female.
I love the part about the gypsy tattoo. That female face – why? Don’t get me wrong, these can be beautiful. But I’m just curious about what that actually means to the person who wants that tattoo.
Here is another great piece of history from the article: ”Jesse Knight, the first British female tattooist, who started in 1921. She learned from her dad, who tattooed the family crest on her back. She was the only female artist in the UK for decades; she ran her own shop and built her own machines. A client Knight tattooed when she was in her 60s remembers her lighting a match and holding it out to prove she still had a steady hand, and she still tattooed into the ‘80s. Happily, a lot of her flash and photos of her work survive—you can see it in the book. She was a true pioneer.”

So this woman goes to a tattoo shop around 10PM. She asks for a piercing. I can’t help but wonder what she wanted pierced. They inform her that they do not do piercings. She leaves. She comes back with a dude, and shoots up the shop and a car. (I wonder if this is Trinity Tattoo??? Anyone know?)
This is Colorado, Sally. Not Florida. Go smoke a little weed and relax. You can get a hole put into your body tomorrow!!!

I’m sorry Florida.
There really, honestly has to be something in your water.
Why can’t anyone find this dude? I mean, he has a HUGE FRIGGIN SPIDER ON HIS FACE!!!
I don’t mean to be rude, but I really believe that Florida needs a massive, massive overhaul. Massive. Am I right??

It put my heart through the wringer reading about Avery’s misadventures in Toronto. We haven’t heard from her for a bit now, and that’s frightening.
Please get up to date on the situation if you haven’t heard about it.

Please, please sign this petition. Fracking sucks. It has no place anywhere near living beings.
Far and away, my favorite on this is the piano.
Now, of course this would come crashing off the wall, sending the shih tzus flying for the door and me probably beneath it. But it does look cool.
This one, below, is my second favorite, and I believe my friend Steve from The A Room Studios, should do it.

Recently I’ve been thinking about how much I love my little house. I suck at housekeeping, so that leads me to:
Dream #1. I’d love to have a cleaning lady. No, seriously. An organizing whiz/cleaning lady (or crew, or Mr Clean, so long as they’re into what they do and are nice). This would just be such an amazing gift to my family and me.
Dream # 2. My house is small. As I said, that’s fine with me. But…if I could knock down the back wall of my house and add a few feet to my Kiddo’s room, our computer room and my bedroom, wow……. Big friggin windows in each room, maybe a window seat in my room??? Yeah. Amazeballs!
My house is just a teeny bit bigger!
A house with no back wall. So you can see!!
Dream # 3. Eventually, maybe we can build a second floor on the house. Maybe i can have a room for psychic readings upstairs for groups who want to experience the medium in me!
Dream # 4. This closely relates to dream # 1. I want my basement clean. Devoid of bugs, spiders and those friggin sprickets. I do not want them dead. I merely would like them to be relocated to a place where they won’t make anyone scream and they won’t be in any danger from humans. I’m thinking our shed would work!
Dream # 5. This is a two parter. The first part is getting my license to drive. That will be what I need to get myself a serious muscle car, circa 1968. Oh yes that would be mad cool!!!
muscle cars. yeah
These are my dreams. Of course a built in pool and a deck would be even nicer, but I think these will be after my initial 3 to 5 year dream plan.
I told you mine. What are yours?????
