I have been thinking about this for some time now and it really irks the fuck out of me so I need to rant about it. A certain SG girl, one of my all-time favorites and easily one of SG's most famous & recognized from amazing videos to the recent SG burlesque tour, has been posting wish lists on Amazon.com for her "fans" to...

I have numerous friends in the tattoo industry / art. Three own very reputable studios, few others are long time employees at other studios, two friends are licensed piercers but also do scarification My closest friends all have 20+ year experience tattoo'ing. I keep kicking around this idea that I want to try my hand and patience at tattoo'ing. I love the art and...

I don't want to write off summer yet as I love it. Wish it was this fucking hot and sunny ALL the time where I live. I am so much healthier in warm weather but I am so stoked for this Autumn. Once again going to see TWO SG Blackheart Burlesque Shows (Baltimore and Philadelphia) and so hoping Mel and Katherine are on the...

Summer is in full swing here and I am working so hard . . . . at being healthier. Twenty-four months ago I began this journey and it has ebbed and flowed like the oceans. I'd push my self hard and my body would push back even harder. I lost nearly 100 lbs. but when I hit my first plateau my body pushed back and added 15 lbs...

My friends ALWAYS talk about a bucket list of men or women, depending on who I am with, & I normally just sigh - been there done that or isn't there something more interesting to talk about. And yet I still end up getting sucked in to the conversation and then find myself justifying my choices. Of couse SG girls and the followers of this movement...

So glad I moved on to a new tattoo artist and studio. Today was my second sitting with Chris Hall at Skintonz (Lancaster, PA) and a brutal one as the inside of the bisep is NO JOKE nor is the infamous "ditch" but didn't tap out. We got the next addition to my classic nautical sleeve done and I am beginning to really appreciate...

Tomorrow is the day - last major piece of work on the left arm sleeve. Haven't see the art yet but I trust my artist and he knows the style of the this black and grey nautical sleeve. Antique diving helmet on the inside of the bisep should pretty much cover the last large piece of empty real estate left on this arm. Next will...

In about two weeks heading back in for the next addition to my "classic" nautical themed sleeve and most likely the last of the larger pieces on this arm. Finally adding an antique diving helm on the inside of the bicep and upper arm. Finally we will look at what can be used to fill in some of the negative space and tops of the...

So after making the switch to a new tattoo artist I'm really happy with how he was able to work his style and art into the existing work I had in place.

Previous artists work is above, which I love but she just was so disorganized and frankly the studio left a lot to be desired.

The new work - sorry fresh and poor lighting

Well I am settled on going for another octopus tattoo and leaning towards the left side of my neck with the tentacles reaching down around the lower portions of my neck, upper chest and shoulder blade / upper back. I have had such good feedback on the octopus I have as the focal point on my left arm sleeve it just seems fitting to add one...

So soon I will be heading back in to get the Jim Lee Batman inspired tattoo shaded and colored in but I keep finding myself wanted to add one more octopus somewhere. The one on my left forearm is pretty epic, I almost cried when I saw the finished work, but my passion for the ocean, diving and my nautical heritage has me thinking hell...
