I hate to say this, but my husband was right. I should never have left you, my little piece of blog paradise! I so missed this.
But. There are changes going forward. I haven’t supported just tattoos for quite some time. So I have to change the blog name and allow myself to write and post all the random coolness I want to share.
I hope you’ll stick around!
Hey guys! I’m going to be winding down on Mama Tattoo to focus more on Mama Tarot for a bit.
I’ll be back…
Many of you know I’ve been a card reader for well over 35 years, and now that I’ve finally found the freedom that I needed, I’m going to be a full time psychic medium here on Long Island.
I still love tattoos, and tattoo artists, but I need to focus a bit on my own craft! Please come join me at MamaTarot – I’ll still be complaining and whining an commenting on things, so you can do that with me there now.
Please come with. The more the merrier!
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.
