Working hard

Since i got my first job, i have being working hard on it.

My job has a official name SEO. I think it is so easy at first.

Actually, it is easy to learn the basic knowledge. But if u want to achieve some goals, it is really hard.

Some details you should always keep in your mind. 

I think the most hard thing is u should understand how Google spider do its  work. It is really hard to follow.

Google rules are always changing.

We need to get a better ranking, we need working hard.

What should i say, just keep on, hold on!!

My own fashion style

I am a girl, every girl loves fashion dresses, so i am.
Fashion is the thing we always follow. Each girl has their own tastes about dresses, their own styles.

Let me show you mine.

So  if u see my blogspot, u can share your dress style with me, too.

I love these inspired song lyrics

I do not have any talent   but I have a dream of innocence
I was silly   But I am not stupid   I will prove that with my  whole life

I have a dream  there is nothing wrong   I will insist that 

Dream need crazy enough  that can push me to be a hero  one day  there will be  a story about my life

I do not particularly outstanding 

I am not good or bad   
am just dare to be different
My life is keeping on making mistakes again and again  but never stop to begin from the beginning.

Perhaps it is easier to give up something of my live   but then I am not just who i am  any more 

I believe One day I will have my sky

Be a hero in my sky    I know you know that you will understand

Done on south street. my very first dripping cherries that happen to be on fire!

bling bling done on south street

 touch up of the shamrock I did a month or so ago. He had a rough heal and it looked like some of the scabs may have been picked or ripped off.... so hopefully this time around it will heal better for him.
 done at No Ka Oi. crappy photo though. it's really not lopsided... next time i'll have him stand up for the photo so it looks straight.
 done at No Ka Oi
 same day
 same day also, used my handwriting which was kinda cool
last tattoo of the day at No ka Oi. Super nice woman and got the tattoo for her son.... the elephant was cute and fun to do as well. used my new rotary machine and really enjoying it so far.

Finally ordered business cards today. Haven't had my own cards since college. Baby steps!

Until next time!

visit from old friends

What I forgot to mention....

During the week I got a visit from some very old friends that I haven't seen in maybe 4 years. Big thanks to Monica and Genna for stopping in and bringing me a new customer! He got a little vhs tape on his forearm which was a blast to do. Unfortunately the picture I took looks crappy so until I can aquire a better one from him I'll leave this up to your imagination. It's nice to run into old friends who have seen me from the very beginning, before I even made it to South Street working with everyone. I met them when I was still in NJ apprenticing.

Pics to follow......

South Street

 So it's been a bit slow around here for walkins this week, but the weekend is here and hopefully it will pick up. This one walked in yesterday. Although the design is simple i was having some machine trouble... both shaders decided to stop working while I was filling this in. In a way it was a good thing, it forced me to use my rotary for the first time and I have to say I really like it. It was a challenge to figure out the setup but once I got the hang of it I enjoyed it quite a bit. Sorry for the crappy photo... for some reason it looks more grey than black....

Another walkin, very small and simple name. As much as I hate tattooing the wrist it does get easier the more I do it. It's just one of those areas that I find it one of my weakest areas. Practice Practice Practice.

Until next time...

Enjoy my Sunday- a small square near my house

Has nothing to do at Sunday, take some photos at a small square near my home.

Many people go there every night, they dance and sing. But i do not like go outside at night.

My lovely sister took these photos for me. She is always so nice.

Hope you can share your life photos with me, too!!

I am going to graduate

I have been waiting this moment for so long time.
Now, it is coming next month. I am so happy.
Happy to study at school, but happier to get the chance to study in society.

Now, i have got my first job already. I am determined to do this job hardly. Must keep on! Must give myself confidence.  No matter how hard it is!

catching up

 So here's a recap of the past few weeks. Still doing stuff on the arms, legs, back and feet only... no torso as of yet. Hopefully soon I'll get an opportunity to work on those areas, as I am in the process of getting guinea pigs for those spots.

This woman found me through the shop website and got this small token for her dog....
 Did this while working in NJ one day. Really nice dude and he brought the artwork in for me.
 More lettering
 Yet another upside down word :)
 tiny screw on ankle... fun to do and did this while on 4th Street
 This one walked in while on 4th Street... challenging working with all the variations of grey, but overall im pseudo happy with it. I need to work on smoothing out my grey better.
 Another name in NJ
 NJ again on same woman
 Name in brown ink done in NJ

 Another name.... need some more work on line consistency some more.
 Young art school student needed this fixed up....

 AFTER. hopefully she will let me add color to this one in the future.
 Another word done on South Street.... again need to practice more with the wrist... by far my least favorite area to tattoo.
 Treble clef on arm done on South Street
 Paw prints done on South Street.... fun one to do
One of my favorites so far!  This guy came into 4th Street one day and while his daughter was getting tattooed by one of the other artists we discussed this one. This ended up  being much larger than originally planned, but Im pretty happy with how it came out, for the exception of the grey shading in the flag. He's going to come in when it's healed so I can touch up some areas and see how it all healed up. I hope he continues this all the way around.. such a fun one to do and it's always nice to be able to add a little bit of artistic license as well.

 This woman came into South Street the other day... she had this name already and we added the care bear with stars and dust.
 finished. I think I could have done more with the shading but it was a good experience to do a stencil and draw on the skin a bit. Finally getting the hang of full color work.

 Another walkin on South Street.... this one was fun to do... Its not often that I get to do a nice size butterfly.
 Just finished this outline about an hour or so ago on a friend of the shop, Lucien. He let me do whatever I wanted and have been obsessed with drawing rats again, so here we are, a spin off the sailor jerry flash with the rat sitting on the skull, done in my style. I always wanted to do a tattoo with a monacle in it, so it was alot of fun. I got to experience with different line weights again and took my time with the outline. Next time he comes back to town we'll add some shading and eventually color.

Until next time.....
