First tattoo of 2011 and more!

11 Jan

2011 has been a promising one so far. I’ve done two of my best pieces ever already, I think!

So here was the first tattoo of 2011 on my beautiful sister Sara. She had wanted this for a long long time, so it was nice to finally be able to get it done.  It looks a little distorted in the picture because of where it is situated on her arm… photos never do tattoos justice!

 

So, not bad for my first gypsy girl!

Allan had contacted me a few weeks ago to let me know he had booked in for the tree of life badboy.Didnt realise it was such an epic cover-up! hah.
Had already tattooed a new buddha on the back of his neck earlier in the morning. Again, the picture doesnt do it justice, you cant even see the variation in tone between the two cheeks. I havn’t put this image on my facebook for this very reason.

This was his second tat of the day, and this was the first drawing stage.

Spent quite some time drawing this up. Could draw trees all day, they are awesome!!

Still an ongoing piece as were going to add some leafs, and he eventually will background it with birds flying up towards his chest where he has (or will have) a sun/moon chestpiece.  It’s all very exciting! Love tattooing Allan, sits like a champ and always wants awesome tattoos. Soo good catching up too, glad he is doing well 🙂

Happy New Year!!

6 Jan

JUST a quick and seriously overdue post to say happy new year to all my wee pals out there! Hope 2011 is a healthy one, full of goal attaining, and resolution keeping for everyone!

I have only made one resolution this year – to stop worrying.

I am the biggest worrier in the world, i worry about everything to the point that it actually effects me emotionally. So this needs to change. Easier said than done (breaking a life-long habit and all), but it’s all about the small changes that contribute to the greater good!

 

This time last year i was still apprenticing at Pagan Ink, and it was around February i started tattooing full-time. I turned 19 in the May of 2010. I think i learned a few life lessons this year. It feels like this year had flew past, but on reflection i’ve actually changed quite a bit since a year ago.

 

I hope 2011 brings positive change. I’m all for the positivity this year, and i’m going to eliminate all those things that don’t make me happy, or atleast learn to deal with them.
What does 2011 bring for you?
Did you make any resolutions??

 

 

Also, Scottish Tattoo Convention this year!! EXCITING! Can’t wait to see the line-up. Its being held at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange in March. I seen Funeral For A Friend there a few years ago. Its a decent sized venue and actually perfect for a convention.
