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.


1st Foot tattoo by Vicky Morgan @ Bodycraft, Nottingham.

Picture is awful, so dark. Will get a better one up when its healed!

Trying a new aftercare cream on my new tattoo, is going well, ill let yous know.


Anyway so our trip to nottingham was amazing, i loved it. 11hr drive round, but so worth it. Amazing banter in the shop, they were all so friendly and you could tell they all really got on, which was cool.

The actual tattoo was sore but not unbearably, up until the last hour or so i was fine. The finishing touches were.. nippy!
Well worth every minute. Can’t wait to go down and get my undead one. AHH exciting.

Learned alot from Vicky, and was nice to gain a new friend in the industry, especially one as amazing as her. I’m hope we keep in touch from now on.
Feels so good to have an original aswell, not just a copy of another tattoo.

Never getting tattooed in the shop again (no offence to anyone in the shop) its just that i really want to build a collection now, from loads of different amazing artists. Vicky has really inspired me to just go for what i want. It’s been such a motivational experience (cheez as it sounds) and i can’t wait to go back to work and make some changes. Theres defo more needing done about custom work. We dont really do custom work at the shop and that is going to change, for me anyway. I want people booked in further apart, with more consultations so i can actually get a feel for what people want and draw them up something, instead of just pulling something from google.. cause at the end of the day, thats why im in this job, to use MY art, not someone elses!

Thanks Vicky, for more than my tattoo.
Defo needed this.
