It’s almost Christmas Vacation!!!

and I have a little bit before we close up for the night. So I was able to actually upload these tattoos the same week that I made them (the last one here only and hour or two ago).

Here’s some of what I have been up to tattoo-wise this week.

Donna had a small tattoo on her back already (I don’t know who made it) and asked me to make her a celtic Tree of Life to go above the existing tattoo. She gave me few ideas and let me run with it. She sat great and got this finished in one sit.

I had started this piece on Rick a little while back ( I think I may have posted the first sitting shots) and we finished it up on Friday. The tattoo goes with a King Arthurian theme that we have been working on together since the “old days” at the original shop back when it was located at 374-1/2. (How many of you even remember the shop pre-1995?). I love spending time with Rick and it was great to be able to catch up and find out what has been going on in each others lives.
Tattooing is weird like that, we get to know someone and then may not see them again for years at a time, but when we get back together it’s like no time at all has passed.

Meghan and I had planned out this tattoo quite some time ago – life got in the way and it was put on hold for a bit. My appointment(s) for today had booked and cancelled so many times that I had come to think of it as the cursed appointment Saturday and that I just wasn’t going to tattoo at all today. Figured I would catch up on some work type stuff and play counter squirrel. As a last ditch attempt to rebook it I had posted that it was available (again) and Meghan stepped up and said she could come in. Perfect. I get to spend time with another client that I really like AND I don’t have to do any drawing to prepare for the appointment. What could be better?
This is as far as we made it today, but since she already had an appointment to start it in January we won’t have to wait long to finish it up.

All in all an outstanding week. Looking forward to spending some time curled up with my sweetie over the next few days.
Hope that wherever you are and whatever you are celebrating there is joy, love and abundance.
