Stickers

Stickers are here.  Stop by the shop if you want some...or email me.  If I have to mail them, then they're going to cost a dollar partly due to postage but mostly because I really hate going to the post office. 

Summer agenda

Summer is here and it is time to regroup.   July is typically a slow month for tattooing.  Everyone is on vacation or on the lake.  Meanwhile I am working on tieing loose ends for projects old and new.  I finally printed a new portfolio with 4 years of "new" work.  It's hard to believe its been that long since I have updated my book.  I have t shirt and sticker designs ready to print and a few custom rings ready to cast. Rings will be available rarely as they take some time to make and I really only do it as a hobby.  

With all of this going on I am working hard to make time for myself.  I have worked long days and nights without break for most of my career.  Recently I have been sticking to actual store closing hours and not working late.  I have been taking 5 minute stretches hourly.  Drinking more water, less coffee and generally taking better care of myself.  One day soon maybe I will quit working on my days off...

The first tattoo that I did for Alex.  While I tattooed she explained that she recently received news that she was terminally ill.  I can't say that I have met many people more positive or energetic than this girl. An honor for me.  I am left with so much to reflect on. Cheers Alex!  Thanks for the education.  

No pain no gain
