So it seems my life has recently taken a dramatic turn. Last month my husband got a phone call saying that his boss was being evicted from the tattoo shop and that he was closing. After some phone calls, panicking, and planning the shop is now ours! Eric has been at that place for ten years and he couldn’t just walk away from it. Things are going to be crazy in the next few weeks as we paint, renovate, and redecorate. If you have a Facebook please like the shop and follow the adventures that we will be going through! I’m so excited, nervous, and scared at once. This year is definitely going to be interesting.
#latergram of the muscle structure practice I did the other day with @ppipremiereproducts #skinillustrator, I would love to bang out an entire limb one day when I have a very patient model or am feeling particularly flexible. #specialeffects #spfx

Take the time to click a few links and like the tattoo shop that my husband and I own. We’ve been busting our butts since December to completely renovate and reopen the shop and now we’re able to start phase 2 of renovations. My husband Eric is an amazing award winning tattoo artist, his work is phenomenal. I’m so happy that it’s finally nice out so I can wear shorts and become a walking billboard again.

A few shots from my recent lesson week in makeup history. Clockwise from the top left we’ve got a transitional 20’s-30’s look (including blocked brows to get that thin shape), 50’s rockabilly, 60’s a la Twiggy, and 80’s color pop punk. Definitely loved the 80’s the most, sans that crazy blush of course 😂

Airbrush final! My season was Autumn 🍁🍂 given more time I definitely would have liked to add some more dimension but considering I did her hair, beauty makeup, and the airbrushed flannel and leaves (white and black lines are hand painted) in two hours, I’m pretty pleased with what I was able to accomplish. Thanks to the fabulous @nellyrecchia for a great week!
