Of New Tattoos and Fictional Boyfriends:

…for with Jo, brain developed earlier than heart, and she preferred imaginary heroes to real ones, because when tired of them, the former could be shut up in the tin kitchen ‘til called for, and latter were less manageable. — Little Women I’d been planning a Harry Potter-related tattoo for years now, but could never decideContinue reading “Of New Tattoos and Fictional Boyfriends:”

Done and done!

Three months, thirteen hours, two sessions, and a shit load of movies later, my birthday tattoo‘s finally done! ^_^ I didn’t think it would take me this long to go back for my second and last session with Ram, but I couldn’t afford to miss another class and had to wait til Module 3 wasContinue reading “Done and done!”

Life Update + New Tattoo

While I’m still mad at that godawful The Last Airbender Movie, I’m glad now that they changedContinue reading “Tattoos # 2 & 3”

Meet Ringo, my octopus tattoo

Noelle and I missed FB’s Free Comic Book Day because we were at Psyko Studio Tattoos in Cavite getting our first tattoos! This is Ringo, my octopus. Ringo and his garden in the shade. This took around 7 1/2 hours to do, counting several breaks. If I’d gotten something smaller and simpler, I would haveContinue reading “Meet Ringo, my octopus tattoo”
