Finally got my two long year tattoo finished!! Check it out and let me know what u think!
Did u ever just want to do something u knew u shouldn’t?? Things the bible or ur parents told u was wrong or a sin? Sometimes we are all tempted to take those steps into the forbidden world. I myself have been there a time or two. But who is anyone to tell u what is forbidden or taboo? Are they really correct or has that just become the accepted way things are. A mild example is tattoos and piercings. I have 5 tattoos. Some very large and some small.
That’s Joe Lucero working on my tat of my family tree. He’s a damn genius with ink. Check out his website
I have a tattoo on my right leg of a Phoenix fairy rising from the flames and ash. My bro drew it and subsequently my daughter drew the tree. The Phoenix represents me growing and rising above my former self. The tree is my immediate family. The bat on my neck represents me and reminds me of who I am. The triad represenst my relationship with my hubby, loyalty respect and trust. The tramp stamp tribal art was when I was young and thin and ready to conquer the world. Although they have all come at different times in my life they all have significant meaning and are memories. My body is a blank canvas that I can’t wait to fill. U say yuck I say ink is art. I have three smallish gaged piercings in my ears. Two in the right and one in the left. Why are they gaged? Because I like them, not because they are the current cool trend. They look like hoop earrings.
But who am I to judge u if u pierce your nose or clit or lip? It’s ur body decorate it however u like despite public opinion. If my daughter shaved her hair off she’d still be the beautiful person I know now. Just because people don’t understand doesn’t mean it’s a sin or taboo. The world has become a really strange place in the modern era. Some for the good, some for the bad. Such as, no one wants a 13 year old getting pregnant, but it happens just the same. After that path has happened all we can do is support and help her. If a teenage boy says he’s gay in this day and age he’s being bullied and turned on?? WTF? Why? We as a people need to support each other with love and kindness. I am so sick of people who preach Christianity then turn around and preach hate. God is not hate people! He is love!! Always has been and his son Jesus was love incarnated. He died so u can treat each other like shit and be forgiven for it?? That’s crap. I would rather think he died so I could live me life in joy and peace. What about you?
Tattoo Update! So excited check out Joe Lucero and his art And artists! They ROCK!
We also discussed what I’m doing next.
“109 in the sky and the pigs won’t quit, your here with me…”
Good Morning. Tuesday was a day of chaos. In 24 hours I managed to break my office chair and my desk. Don’t ask how; it’s just because I’m so damn talented. Whew am I glad today is Wednesday. I have a busy rest of the week ahead of me, but I think I’ll manage as long as I have my vacation to look forward to next week and getting my tattoo finished. I’ll post a pic so you can see where it’s at now. My new artist Joe is going to be turning all the blue into a sunset with the sun behind the tree and the tree is going to be dead. I’ve very excited as it is a big piece and something I’ve been having work done on for a long time. I broke my leg right after The blue was finished and have been working toward getting it finished ever since. Fortunately I found someone who totally rocks. Pretty cute too so he’s nice to look at while all those endorphins run through my system. I have plans for future tattoos at this point. I want a Dia de Los Meurta dead gypsy skull with a bright rainbow ring of flowers surrounding it on my left upper arm and a pin up girl on my right thigh. My new artist actually won an award for a pin up he did. It was frickin stunning so I have no qualms about having him design my stuff.
On the writing front, this months goal is to get my synopsis done for The Taming Moon and get that sucker submitted. I think I can accomplish that. Also my critique partner Wendy Ely and I have a secret writing project in the works. More to come on that if Wendy let’s me share. I am meeting with my CP’s Wendy and Carolyn Hughey this weekend for a meal and so brain storming. Very exciting stuff. No word from Grace yet on my edits of Dangerous Pride. *Sigh* the process always seems to slow when you want it to go fast. I want this book out so bad, but I think they might be waiting to put some time between it and the others I have released. So that’s all for now. Have a happy Wednesday.
