Life Update + New Tattoo

It’s been about a month now since I quit my once-perfect job, which sucks, but I just couldn’t take it there anymore.

Long story short (because I don’t believe in badmouthing a former employer), the offshore head office hired some new people which resulted in some Game of Thrones shit to hit the fan. I was never one for office politics, so I left.


I wasn’t a bum for long. I’m doing graphics and shit from home. It’s a little lonely, but it pays the bills. I also lost the 15 lbs I put on last year so yay!

To celebrate not being unemployed, my 28th birthday, and a little over a year of singledom, I decided to get my 4th tattoo.

I’d wanted something connected to my octopus for quite some time since it feels a little half-assed to me now. It’s kinda just to one side of my back, leaving a lot of blank space,  so I asked Ram to design me a Ukiyo-e/Irezumi-inspired chrysanthemum in waves to make everything look more cohesive. (It was inevitable that I’d get something Japanese-y eventually, yes?)

Due to its size, it had to be split into two sessions. We only got the lining and the chrysanthemum’s colours done this time.

I’m excited to see it all finished.
